Bengals Smother 
Cards in Opener 

The conference opener on the grid- 
iron for the Tigers proved to be a 
real morale booster as a result of the 
Bengals' win over the Parsons Card- 
inals, 26-G. 

Curtis Adams was the first to 
score in the game with a touchdown 
in the first quarter on a 24-yard run. 
John Beasley made good the extra 

In the second quarter, Wes Jordan 
intercepted a pass and ran with the 
ball a distance of 50 yards to set up 
the play for Curtis Adams' second 

In the third quarter, Tommy Stark 
drove over and Curtis Adams inter- 
cepted a pass for touchdowns, and 
Floyd Brown made the conversion 
point following Adams' play. 

The line play of the Bengals on 
defense was particularly pleasing. 
Tony Tapia, Winfield tackle, covered 
three Cardinal bobbles, and Bob Van 
Rchuyver was singled out as a leader 
on the path to the Card backfield.

Arks To Face 
Garden City; 
Tyler Cancelled 

The Juco Tigers will face opposition 
on the gridiron for the second time 
in official conference football this 
season at they line up against Gar- 
den City Saturday evening in what 
has a promise of being the toughest 
game played by the Tigers this sea- 
son. The Tigers have played only two 
previous games, facing the Alumni 
in one, and the Parsons Cardinals in 
the conference opener. 

The game with the Broncs last year 
began with a favorable 13-0 lead for 
the Tigers until the end of the first 
half, then the Garden City team tied 
the Tigers. But if the team works 
out a better offense than they 
showed against Parsons," the Tigers 
have a very good chance of taking 
the game, according to Coach Clint 

The Arkansas City Juco Tigers are 
looking for a spare football team to 
play September 29, in place of the 
Tyler team. The game was cancelled 
Monday by mutual agreement between 
the president of the Tyler school and 
Dean K. R. Galle. 

Dean Galle stated that the Arks 
wouldn't have gained much by the 
trip because of the time and finances 
involved in such a venture. He stated 
also that "We wish to maintain 
friendly relations with the Tyler 
school, and it is to. be understood that 
it was by mutual agreement that the 
game was cancelled. The president 
(who called Dean Galle on Monday 
afternoon) was a perfect gentleman 
about the matter." 

The mutual cancellation was 
brought about because of integration 
difficulties in certain sections of the

Two New Juco Grid 
Coaches Former

and has been doing work toward the 
Master's degree at the University of 

In junior college, along with 
coaching, Mr. Webber teaches Psy- 
chology, Physical Education, and 
Current History. One reason he 
wanted to teach in a junior college 
was his belief that college students 
had a more active interest in learning.

and basketball coach, hails from 
Cedar Vale, Kansas. Mr. Bohannon 
attended high school in Cedar Vale, 
junior College in Ark City, and his

Tigers Wallop 
Alums, 45-0, 
In Annual Tussle 

The Juco Tigers got their first taste 
of action on the field for the new 
football season as they faced the Juco 
Alumni in the sixth annual grid battle 
on September 8, in Curry Field. The 
game resulted in a 45-0 victory for 
the Tigers. 

John Beasley's kick-off for the Ti- 
gers started the game, with the Alum- 
ni on the receiving end. In the first 
quarter, Jim Kenney was first to be- 
come spotlighted when he made a 
23-yard run past the Alumni's left 
end, and scored the first touchdown 
of the game. The Tigers attempted an 
extra-point play, but failed as the ball 
bounced off the cross-bar. 

In the second quarter, Harold Cox 
broke through the center of the Alum- 
ni line to carry the pigskin to the goal 
for another score. Paul Bell attempted, 
and made, the extra point. Vern 
Huttle ran 20 yards to score the third 
touchdown, and Paul Bell did a re- 
take on the extra point. Curtis Adams 
turned out to be the star of the sec- 
ond quarter when he grabbed the ball, 
carried it through the opposing team's 
ranks, and scored the forth touchdown 
in the first half of the game. 

Russell Towles made the longest 
single run of the game, a lenghty 85 
yards, and joined Bell and Cox on the 
list of touchdowners for the third 

The Tigers, for all-game statistics, 
racked up 237 yards in ground gained 
on the field, a 35-yard average on 
three punts, four attempted passes 
with one completed, and a total of 
25 yards in pealties. High point man 
was Harold Cox, with two touchdowns 
and a total of 12 points. The Alumni 
team gained 85 yards, had a 15-yard 
average on punts, attempted ten pas- 
ses with four completions and two in- 
tercepted, and had 35 yards deducted 
on iive penalties.

ies and two other men will escort the

Faculty, Students 
See America 
During Vacation 

Summer activities brought a wide 
variety of experiences to college fac- 
ulty and students, who traveled over 
most of North America. 

Cora Lea Yates, freshman, went to 
Chicago with a group of Presbyterian 
young people from all over Kansas. 
Their mission was to study public 
relations in the Chicago area. The 
group stayed at the YMCA. They 
visited the slum areas of Chicago and 
observed the slum conditions. 

D. C. Stark, instructor of chemistry, 
and his wife made a tour of the North- 
west. They were accompanied by Gail 
White, a 1956 graduate. 

They went through Yellowstone 
National Park and visited and fished 
for ten days in Montana. They con- 
tinued to Glacier National Park, 
Snokane, Portland, and into Califor- 

They drove along the Coast Drive 
to San Francisco and through Yose- 
mite and Sequoia National Parks to 
Los Angeles and San Diego, where 
the Stark's son, Lt. Jack Stark, ACJC 
'51, is stationed. They spent ten days 
in and around San Diego and in Mex- 
ico, v here they took in races and a 

Enroute home they visited Las 
Vegas, Hoover Dam, and the Grand 

Duane Houdek, a sophomore, 
worked the last part of the summer in 
San Diego and took part in many 
talent shows in night clubs. He sang 
and did ventriloquist acts with 
"Harry," his little dummy. He won 
first place at the Club Tempo, The 
Bluenote and the Hideaway clubs. 
Duane took second place at Rosie's 
and again at the Hideaway. 

Duane was interested in the 15- 
story Hotel El Cortez which has a 
glass elevator on the outside of the 
hotel. While riding in this elevator 
a person can see out over the city of 
San Diego. 

Duane also had the privilege of 
playing tennis with Carol Hance, a 
13-year-old girl who is rated as a 
sure national champion for next year. 

Miss Henrietta Courtright, mathe- 
matics instructor, and Miss Ejdith 
Pivis, instructor in women's physical 
education, made a tour of the North- 
eastern states and Canada.

Jim Fergus, Winfield sophomore, 
has been named by the Student Coun- 
cil as clubroom steward for the year. 
Fergus will be in charge of all club- 
room activies and concessions and will 
act as custodian for clubroom equip- 

"The general cooperation of the 
the student body in keeping the club- 
room clean and attractive is asked by 
the Student Council," Jack Anderson, 
student president, said. "It is impos- 
sible for any one person to pick up 
after 300. If we are to have a student 
club of which we are proud and which 
we like to show visitors, each student 
must assist Fergus in his work. Par- 
ticular care should be taken with pop 
bottles, candy wrappers and lunch 
sacks. Let's use those wastebaskets 
for their intended purpose." 

College Band May

Pittsburg 'B', 
El Dorado 



Two home stands face the Bengal 
gridmen in the next two weeks, as 
they defend themselves from invasion 
forces from the east and north. The 
first test will come this Saturday 
night as Ark City plays host to the 
Pittsburg State "B" squad. 

Only once, according to Tiger Tales' 
records have the Tigers faced the 
Teachers, with a win of 26-6 in 1953. 
The "B" squad began the game in a 
belligerent manner, but Ark City 
took over when Billy Grose carried 
the ball 58 yards to the goal. From 
that point on, Pittsburg wasn't even 
considered in the game. 

The Tigers face one if their bit- 
terest opponents in grid play when 
they meet the El Dorado Grizzlies at 
Curry Field October 12. 

In past years, defeats have been 
plentiful for the Tigers at the hands 
of the Grizzlies. In 1946, the first 
year of Tiger Tales' record, the Tigers 
took the Grizzlies 13-0. In 1947, the 
Tigers belted the Grizzlies 12-0 as the 
two teams fought it out on a slick, 
muddy field on a rainy night. On 
November 22, 1948, however, the Griz- 
zlies whopped the Tigers 19-6 under 
the coaching of "Bunt" Speer, who 
stated the Tigers played good ball all 
the way, but the Grizzlies played 
"heads-up" ball. 

In 1949, in the second league game, 
the Tigers were tromped 13-7 as they 
were held back by the Grizzlies' su- 
perior line force. One of the saddest 
defeats for the Tigers was in 1950 
when the Bengals were thrown 71-0. 
Dodge City topped that defeat in 1951 
with a 73-0 victory over the Tigers, 
which resulted in the cancellation of 
the rest of the season's games; there- 
fore, there was no contest with El 

In 1952 Ark City resumed football. 
When the Bengals were pitted against 
the Grizzlies, A. C. lost 32-7. The 
Tigers mustered the strength in 1953 
to beat the Grizzlies for the first time 
in five years by a score of 13-12. 

The first conference loss of 1954 
for the Tigers was to the El Dorado 
Grizzlies by a score of 31-14, as the 
opposition made their grand-slam in 
(he fourth quarter with two touch- 
downs to clinch that game. In 1955, 
Fl Dorado was beaten by the Tigers

Sport Quips

fected what football coaches have been 
dreaming about, three-platoon foot-

and one platoon to attend classes and 

When an extremely short outfielder 
was signed for a major league team, 
he was quite perturbed when none of 
the other players spoke to him, nor 
even paid him the slightest attention. 
He finally asked the manager, who 
told him, "Relax, boy, it's just that 
you're so short the fellows ain't seen 
you yet."

Back to Tie 
Tuisa, l8-l8 

A courageous comeback was staged 
by the Tigers as they bounced upward 
to overcome a 12-0 lead which the 
Tulsa Freshmen had managed to gain 
by the end of the first half of last 
Saturday's grid contest, and went on 
to tie Tulsa 18-18. 

With touchdowns made by Watson 
and McClure in the first and second 
quarters respectively, it looked like a 
long, long evening for the Bengals. 

The first break for Tulsa came only 
minutes after play was begun as a 
punt was blocked by a Tulsa player, 
rebounded nearly twenty yards to 
cross the goal, and was covered by 
Watson for the Tulsa team, to score 
the first six points. McClure made the 
second-quarter touchdown as he re- 
ceived an 18-yard pass behind the 

The Tigers began showing action in 
the second half with a set-up by Rus- 
sell Towles on a 70-yard run, and the 
touchdown by Curtis Adams from the 
four-yard line. 

With a gain of a touchdown toward 
the abolition of the Tulsa team's lead, 
the Tigers were rebuffed by a touch- 
down by McQueen for Tulsa. 

In the final quarter, Towles made 
a 27-yard screen pass to Adams for a 
score, and Tony Tapia helped even the 
score by regaining possesion of the 
pigskin for the Tigers when he inter- 
cepted a lateral pass and carried it to 
the rne-font line. Jim Kenney made 
tlip TD, but the conversion attempt 

The teams were evenly matched, ac- 
cording to the statistics. A. C. gained 
a net of 153 yards in rushing, Tulsa

igers for 
First Loss 

The Juco Tigers were defeated on 
the gridiron for the first time of the 
season as the Garden City Bronc Bus- 
ters downed them, September 22, 7-0. 

The teams were evenly matched, as 
displayed by the tight line work in 
the game. Neither team had been able 
to score until the Garden City team 
managed its lone touchdown in the 
last two minutes of the fourth quar- 
ter, after a penalty placed the ball 
deep in Tiger territory. 

The best field gain of the first 
half of the game when Bell, Reynolds, 
Cox and Shepard, in four separate 
lushes, carried the ball to Garden's 25. 
At that point, Coach Webber replaced 
the platoon, and the replacements 
lost the ball on a fumble almost im- 
mediately after taking the field. Bud 
Shoemaker recovered the ball fol- 
lowing Garden's gain of a first down. 
The Tigers, unable to gain the neces- 
sary yardage, lost the ball on downs. 

The second half of the game went 
much the same way, with neither line 
making outstanding gains, nor points. 

Wicks made the touchdown, and the 
conversion, for the 'Busters in the last 
two minutes of play. 

The yardage in rushing for the 
Tigers was 161, compared to the 
242-yard field gain for the Bronc 
Busters. The Busters had a 36-yard 
punt average on four punts, the 
Tigers had five punts for a 32-yard 
mean. Ark City gained seven first 
downs, the Garden City team had 12. 
Garden attempted five passes, with 
one completed for a 14-yard gain, 
three incomplete, and one intercepted; 
Ark City attempted three, all incom-

averaged only 33 yards. The Tigers

Juco Twins Cause Consternation; 
Some fake Second Look 

Two sets of twins are members of 
the student body this fall. If you 
think you are seeing double when you 
see two tall boys with brown eyes 
and black hair, your eyes are still 
eood but you have seen the Dabrow 

Kenny and John are their names 
and thoy hail from Philadelphia, Penn. 
They are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. 
David Dabrow of Philadelphia. 

Both boys are going to juco on 
basketball scholarships. They were 
introduced to juco by a former basket- 
ball player and student of junior 
college from Philadelphia, Seymore 
Seitchick. He saw the boys play bas- 
ketball and wrote Dan Kahler, basket- 
k 11 coach, about them. 

Kenny and John both play guard 
position and in high school they let- 
tered in basketball two years. 

When asked how they liked ACJC 
they replied, "it is a very friendly 
town and school." 

Another set of twins who are en- 
rolled as a freshman and sophomore 
this year are Lois and Albert Mar- 
shall from Ark City. They both grad- 
uated from Ark City high school in 

Lois enrolled in juco the following 
year while Albert worked for a year 
before enrolling. To see them apart 
you wouldn't guess they were twins 
rs Lois is five feet, six, with brown 
hair and Albert is six feet tall and 
hrs red hair. 

Albert is taking a general course 
while Lois is taking a nursing course 
and nt the present time is employed 
at Memorkl Hospital.

Ravens, Conqs 



The Jueo Tigers face two very 
strong opponents these next two 
weeks in the Coffeyville Red Ravens 
and the Dodge City Conqs. The out- 
come of these games will make or 
break Ark City's chance in the confer- 
ence race. 

Thursday night the Cats are in store 
for a tough night when they travel to 
Coffevville for their third league tilt. 
In 1951 and 1952, Coffeyville was the 
victor in one-sided affairs, 34-0 and 
47-0. The 1954 score showed the Tigers 
the victor 13-7. Ark City's two big 
plays were Mac Choate's 95-yard run 
on an intercepted pass, and Jim 
Estep's 67-yard run around left end. 
Last years game ended with the Red 
Ravens on top by a score of 14 to 3. 
The Tiger's lone tally was Berklie Per- 
ico's 27-yard field goal. 

The following Thursday, Oct. 25, the 
Tigers host the Dodge City Conqs. at 
Curry Field. In 1950, Dodge won the 
game 40 to 2. The under-manned Tiger 
squad was suffering from numerous 
injuries and couldn't do much against 
the rough attack. The 1952 game was 
a one-sided affair with the Conqs. 
mauling Ark City 73 to 0. The Tigers 
could scarcely field a team because of 
the many injuries. After the Dodge 
City game, the rest of the Ark City 
games were postponed because of the 
lack of manpower to furnish a team. 
Play was resumed in 1952, but the 
ever-strong Dodge Citv managed a 
20-7 victory. In 1953, Ark City won 
54 to 19, but last year the Tigers 
were on the short end of a 31 to 21 
score in a Western Kansas dirt bliz- 

Last week the Coffeyville Red 
Ravens won out over Independence 
by a score of 14-0. Dodge City re- 
mained idle, while Ark City went 
down in defeat at the hands of the 
El Dorado Grizzlies, 29-19. The 
Ravens are the only undefeated team 
in the conference.

Tigers Hold First Cage 
Practice for Season 

The first practice of the 1957 bas- 
ketball season was held October 15, 
with Coach Dan Kahler in charge. 
The first practices held will be used to 
brush up on fundamentals and to get 
the boys in shape for the full pres- 
sure of the games coming up. 

Approximately thirty to forty boys 
attended the practice. Scrimmages 
will not get under way until the play- 
ers are better conditioned and are find- 
ing the range more frequently, Coach 
Kahler said. 


igers Merce, 
But Grizzlies 
Hit Death Blow 

Tigers are noted for being fierce 
and hardy fighters, but so are Griz- 
zlies. And it would seem that although 
a Tiger may get in more licks, the 
Grizzly's blow is harder. At least, 
when the Tigers are the Ark City 
football team, and the Grizziles be- 
long to El Dorado's grid force. 

Even though Ark City racked up a 
better playing record than did the 
Grizzlies, the El Dorado squad racked 
up more score — a small detail that 
should be considered. 

In last Saturday's contest at Curry 
field, the Grizzlies romped over the 
Tigers in a 29-19 victory. The scoring 
for El Dorado started in the first 
quarter with a safety following a 
blocked punt by Hall. Overton made 
the first TD of the game for El Dor- 
ado, and Feller converted success- 
fully. In the second quarter, Brill scor- 
ed, and Feller made himself obnoxious 
to the Tiger fans by booting the extra 
point. Tommy Stark helped to lessen 
the lead with a touchdown for the 
Bengals, and Vein Hottle ran the ball 
across the line for the seventh Tiger 
point. Scofield put in his two-cents 
worth with a 2-yard run into the end 
zone, and "old faithful" Feller did his 
duty again on the conversion. 

With 12 minues, ten seconds left in 
the third quarter, Brill was injured, 
and had to be carried off the field on a 
stretcher. The El Dorado coach in- 
formed this reporter that Brill had 
suffered a sprained knee, and the in- 
jury required a physician's care. 

In third quarter score, Towles made 
a yard run around right end to score, 
but Adams' conversion attempt proved 

In the fourth period, Scofield plung- 
ed 4-yards to score and Feller missed 
his first conversion attempt of the 
game when he tried to tag on an extra 
point. Adams received an 11 -yard pa-s

Pittsburg 'B' 
Gorillas, 33-6 

Pittsburg's "B" team was downed 
by the Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers 33-6 in Saturday, October 6's, 

With Adams starting the play for 
the Tigers, the Bengals began romp- 
ing over the end zones in a habitual 
manner until it would seem that per- 
haps Pittsburg either didn't care, or 
weren't aware they had a football 
game scheduled for that night. In 
fact, it wasn't until the second half 
that Pittsburg even came close to 
start scoring against Ark City, and it 
was in the last quarter that Lang 
finally carried the ball across for the 
Gorillas' lone score. 

Not so for the Tigers. Adams began 
the scoring with a touchdown from 
the one-yard line. Russel Towles 
followed through, also in the first 
quarter, with a 60-yard run which 
was immensely aided by a key block 
by Irv Wahlenmeir. The third TD of 
the first quarter was worked by Parky 
Johnson on a 71-yard run, and was 
followed by Stark's extra point. 

In quarter number two, Towles ran 
80 yards to the goal. In the third 
quarter, Hottle passed 18 yards to 
Johnson for the score, and Adams 
helped with a conversion. 

form Towles for the Tigers' third, and 
last, score, and once again Adams 
failed the conversion. 

The Tigers out-played the Grizzlies, 
and won almost in every respect ex- 
cept points. The Tigers gained 263 
yards rushing, lost only five, attempted 
seven passes and completed three, 
fumbled 19 times, recovered four, and 
were assessed only 60 yards in penal- 
ties. The Grizzlies gained 164 yards 
rushing, lost 10 yards, attempted 9 
passes, completed five, fumbled 29 
times, recovered five fumbles, and 
were assessed 105 yards in penalties. 
The first-down record: Tigers — 24, 
Grizzlies — 13. 

Coach Weber had the boys try some 
new plays which proved to work nice- 
ly on occasion. The most outstanding 
was the "swinging gate", or unbal- 
anced "T", in which all the lineman 
except the opposite end concentrate 
on one side of the center. This type 
play was used extensively by Okla- 
homa University when they beat the 
Texas Longhorns at Dallas the day 
following the Tigers' defeat by the

Collegians To Get 
Mid-Term Grades Thursday 

Mid-term grade reports will be is- 
sued to junior college students No- 
vember 8, Dean K. R. Galle has an- 
nounced. Most college instructors were 
administering the mid-term examin- 
ations this week, though some had 
delayed the process until next Monday 
or Tuesdav. Mid-term grades are not 
a part of the permanent record of the 
student, but are estimates issued to 
let him know how he is doing in his 
elasswork, the dean pointed out. 

Kay Winegarner, 18-year-old soph- 
omore and head cheerleader, was 
crowned Queen Alalah XXV in a gala 
coronation ceremony at the auditor- 
ium-gym, Friday night, to touch off 
the Twenty-fifth Anniversary Arkala- 
lah celebration for Arkansas City. 

Jack Anderson, Student Council 
president, placed the crown on the 
Queen's head, and Gail White, '56, 
Queen Alalah XXIV, handed her the 
royal scepter, symbol of majesty in 
the annual festivities. 

The Queen was surrounded by a 
court including four runners-up in 
the community balloting, Libby Giles, 
Elizabeth Banister, Betty Derr, and 
Shirley Reid. Duane Houdek served as 
master of ceremonies for the corona- 
tion program, and sang "Moments to 
Remember" in a solo tribute to the 
Queen candidates. 

Kay wore a royal robe of silver 
and white brocade, designed and made

part in the program, with presenta- 
tion of "Great Day," and joined the 
high school chorus in the number, 
"By the Light of the Silvery Moon," 
a special arrangement by Mr. Judd. 
Other school groups included dance 
groups from senior high and junior 
high schools. 

The Queen and her attendants were 
central figures in the giant Arkalalah 
parade Saturday afternoon, riding 
high on a giant float. The five other 
nominees, Nancy Poore, Sylvia Bays, 
Burchie Baber, Bessie Czaplinski, 
and Helen Shoemaker, rode floats 
provided by businesses and civic clubs. 
This is the first year for all nominees 
to be featured in the parade. 

Miss Mary Margaret Williams shep-

City Workmen Mark Central 

For Juco Angle Parking 

City workmen completed last week 
the task of marking Central Avenue 
between Second and Third Streets for 
angle parking. The change was made 
from parallel parking for the specific 
benefit of junior college drivers, en- 
abling them to have free half or full 
day parking without tying up the 
spaces in the parking lot. 

"The city parking lots are designed 
for turnover use, and not for extended 
periods of time," City Manager Wayne 
Lambert explained. "We hope college 
drivers will take advantage of the 
spaces marked for them, and leave as 
many of the lot spaces for the short- 
time parker as possible. This does not 
mean that students are to be denied 
space in the lot. We'd appreciate it a 
lot, however, if students who park for 
a hslf day or the entire school day 
would nse the spaces especially 
marked for them, the new angle park- 
in? area on Central."

Juco Student Leads 
Sammy Kaye Band 

During the Sammy Kay show a 
contest was held to see who could lead 
the Sammy Kay band best. The first 
four volunteers were selected to try 
and Mike Mayberry, juco freshman, 
won the contest. 

Each contestant had to lead a dif- 
ferent number and Mike's number 
was Tiger Rag. Since Mike is a mem- 
ber of the juco band this song was 
fairly familiar to him.

It was a dullish evening at the 
snooze shack. Julie was sticking pins 
in an effigy of the landlady. "Hiede" 
Heidebrecht was welding a manhole 
cover to his wrist watch. Smittie 
(John) was writing a letter to Kim 
Novak in blood. Like I say, "It was a 
dullish evening." 

Foster said: "This is too yawn

mad and wild and different and gasp- 

"Think, Chaps, think!" said Andy

" My name is Bridey Clarahan," said 
Moose. "The year is 1818 and I am in

Musical Quartet 
Presents Show 
For Assembly 

A musical show was presented 
today at assembly by the New World 
Quartet. The Quartet sang a program 
consisting of spirituals, popular fa- 
vorites, and musical comedy. 

The New World Quartet is a 
combination of four exciting singing 
voices. These young singers were 
selected for tour after many metro- 
politan appearances. Individual mem- 
bers of the group were chosen for 
tour because of their successes in 
the vocal field. 

The quartet consists of Lyn Joi, 
soprano, Vivian Ann Brailsford, con- 
tralto, David Dunson, baritone, and 
Alex Yancey, tenor. They were 
accom panied at the piano by Lawr- 
ence Mellon. 

Each person in the quartet has done 
outstanding work. Alex Yancey was 
the winner of the Arthur Godfrey 
award in 1956, David Dunson appear- 
ed in several stage shows, Vivian 
Brailsford appeared at Carnegie Hall, 
and Lyn Jon was with Edward

Tiger Teeth 
Seek Beaver 
Meat Tonight 

Tonight the Ark City Tigers travel 
to Pratt for a conference tilt with the 
Beavers. In the past the Beavers have 
not proven to be exceptionally strong, 
but they will be going all out to upset 
the favored Bengals. 

Past scores have shown the Tigers 
all victorious in the contests played 
with Pratt. No game was played with 
them in 1954, but in 1955 the Tigers 
shut them out 13 to 0, after Pratt 
returned to conference football after 
an absence of four years. Prior to 
1955,the last time the Tigers and 
Beavers met was in 1950. Thus far 
in a series of nine games that the 
two clubs have played, the Cats have 
won six, lost none, and tied three. In 
1950 Ark City tied the Beavers 6-6. 

In the season's home final, on Nov- 
ember 9, the Tigers host the Indepen- 
dence Pirates. Past clashes between 
the two teams have showed that they 
are pretty evenly matched and play 
real hard-fought ball. In 1954 the 
Bengals won out in a good game by 
the score of 35 to 7. The game last 
year was tight all the way with the 
resulting score indicated a 20 to 20 

The Pirates lost two close ones to 
El Dorado and Coffeyville, and on the 
basis of comarative scores rate as 
slight favorites. An added interest 
this year will be the presence on the 
Pirate bench of Bob Sneller, juco grad 
of 1949, who is assistant grid coach 
at Independence.

Coffeyville Ravens 
Slay Tigers, 26-0 

The Tigers were handed another 
bitter cup of tea when Coffeyville 
edged them 26-0 in what should have 
been, but was not, a stiff battle at 
Coffeyville October 18. 

The Bengals just weren't "on it" 
that night, and of course, injuries 
from previous games took a heavy 
toll in skill. 

All told, the Tigers netted 150 yards 
in rushing, obtained seven first-downs, 
attempted seven passes and completed 
one, punted seven times for a 25-yard 
average and had five penalites asses- 
sed for a total of 35 yards. 

Coffeyville netted 203 yards rushing, 
12 first-downs, completed three out of 
seven pass attempts, punted three 
times for a 48-yard average, and 
chalked up six penalites for a total 
of 60 vards. 

Bengal Game Captain 

Tiger lineman-of-the-week, or of 
the season, is Bob Van Schuyver, 
center, who is 20 years old, stands 
5' 11", and weighs 200 pounds. Bob, 
who has played football for four years 
now, was named permanent game cap- 
tain of the Bengals following the 
Garden City tilt. Bob is known not 
only for his size and strength, but 
his agility as well. (Photo courtesy

Sfio-tlite an Sp-ositd. 

Welcome, Sports Fan, to this new 
column "Spotlite on Sports". For in- 
formation galore, guesses on the final 
score, or accuracy, you won't find 
what you're looking for here. How- 
ever, if you are interested in a fresh 
slant on the world of sports, this is 
the spot for you. Read on, dear Read- 
er, read on 

It has been rumored that at the 
first football pratice following the 
game at Coffeyville, (the results of 
which do not need re-mentioning), 
Coach Clint Weber told his boys, 
"Fellows, for the rest of the season, 
we're going to forget the trick plays, 
the fancy formations, and so on I've 
been teaching you, and instead, we're 
going to start at the beginning. Now, 
this object I'm holding is called a 
football. . . ." And, they say, at that 
point, one of the boys from backfield 
pleaded, "Hey, Coach, not so fast!" 

But in the week following that 
tragic floperoo game, the boys picked 
up not only the basic fundamentals, 
apparently, but the higer aspects of 
the game as well, because in last 
Thursday night's tilt against the 
Dodge Conqs, the Bengals not only 

Tigers Win 
31-27 Over 
Dodge Conqs 

Dodge City has an excellent team 
in their Conquistadors, but when they 
happen to be matched against a bevy 
of Tigers, they don't have a very good 
chance of survival. That is, if the 
grid game of last Thursday night is 
any indication. At Curry Field here 
in Ark City, the Juco Tigers defeated 
the Conqs 31-27, on that fateful (to 
the Conqs) Thursday just gone past. 

In the first quarter, Jim Kenney 
passed to Tommy Stark to complete 
a 44-yard pass play for a td, and Wes 
Jordan converted. 

Stark passed to Ralph Hanna in 
the second quarter for a score from 
the 26-yard line. Russel Towles in- 
tercepted a pass in that same quar- 
ter, and ran 90 yards to the goal. 

The third-quarter star was Vern 
Hottle, who shoved the ball over from 
the 2-yard line, and Vic Walker com- 
pleted A. C.'s scoring in the fourth 
quarter by forcing the ball over from 
the 3-yard line. 

Littlejohn scored all td's for Dodge 
with the exception of the one in the 
first quarter which was played by 
Mike Ford. Littlejohn ran back the 
third-quarter kick-off 80 yards for 
the second Conq score. 

Ark City netted 274 yards rushing, 
collected 18 first downs, completed 
three out of seven passes for 70 yards 
gained, intercepted two for a gain of 
90 yards, fumbled three times, re- 
covered four, punted four times for 
a 28-yard average, and was penalized 
seven times for 45 yards. 

Dodge netted 199 yards rushing, 
15 first downs, four out of 13 passes 
completed for 106 yards, no inter- 
ceptions, fumbled twice, recovered 
once, punted twice for a 36-yard aver- 
age, and was penalized three times 
for 25 yards. 

Tiger Basketball Squad 
Shapes Up, Says Coach 

Dan Kahler, head basketball coach, 
says the new team is in "pretty good 

"After 12 practices, the squad has 
assembled everything they'll need for 
the first game. How they'll use then- 
knowledge depends on the practices

season's most exciting performances 
by a score 31-27.

^kanhiaiuina MeditatiaM, 

Many years ago Christopher Colum- 
bus landed on America, which to him 
was a dissappointment because he 
was headed for India. Years later the 
Pilgrims came to America and landed 
on our soil, helped to found our coun- 
try, and fought to save themselves in 
their new world. 

Hardships greeted them from every 
place and it seemed like that all was 
useless. Never did any of them dream 
that our country would be as great 
and bi<» as it is today. 

Their first Thanksgiving was to 
thank God for food and allowing them 
the chance to live in a great and fine 

country as they pleased. Today our 
Thanksgiving's are celebrated by hav- 
ing a big feast as the Pilgrims did, 
but we have a lot more to be thankful 

We have the many freedoms which 
allows us to live, pray, talk, think, 
and act as we please. We have free 
education and a chance to become a 
influential if we desire. We have the 
chance to lead, fight for, and serve our 
country as others have done before 

On this Thanksgiving day let us be 
thankful for our heritage, and may 
God grant us world peace 

Betty Derr Is 
Honored as 1956 
Football Queen 

Betty Derr, sophomore coed, was 
crowned football queen for 1956, Fri- 
day night, November 9, at half-time 
of the game between the Ark City 
Tigers and the Independence Pirates. 
Barbara Lemert and Helen Shoe- 
maker were her attendants. The three 
girls were chosen by the football team 
and school election was held for the 
selection of the queen from the three 

Betty, Barbara, and Helen were 
driven on to the field at half-time by 
their escorts Jack Anderson, Jim 
Carter, and Howard Blenden, respec- 
tively, and escorted to the center. Bob 
VanSchuyver, football captain, re- 
ceived the envelope from Jack Ander- 
son, student council president, which 
contained the queen's name. 

Bob placed the crown on Betty's 
head and gave her the traditional 
kiss. Ruby McNutt gave her a bouquet 
of white mums and Bessie Czaplin- 
ski placed a football necklace around 
her neck. 

Julie Harper and Ann Harmon gave 
the attendant's crowns to Jim Carter 
and Howard Blenden. Jim placed the 
crown on Barbara's head, with a kiss, 
and Howard placed Helen's crown 
on her head and gave her a kiss. 

The queen and her attendants 
watched the second half of the game 
from their car and afterwards they 
were guests of honor at a homecoming 
dance held in the junior college audi- 
torium. At the dance Betty received 
a real football painted silver with 
the players names written on it. 

Betty wore a black and white suit 
with black accessories. Barbara was 
attired in a beige suit with dark 
brown accessories and Helen had on 
a light brown suit with brown ac- 
cessories. All three girls had white 
mum corsages trimmed in black and 
gold ribbon. 

The Tiger Action Club was in 
charge of the ceremony, and expenses 
were paid from Student Council

Ike Tops Popularity Poll 
By Ju-Collewiars, 100-40 

Either ACJC has Republican lean- 
ings, or the officials at the polling 
place stuffed the ballot box, because 
in the preferential poll conducted Nov- 
ember 5, Ike carried the popular vote 
with a lead of 100-40. Elvis Presley, 
doggone it, got only four votes. 

At any rate, the representation of 
the student body was not good. Out 
of over 315 eligible electors, only 187 
actually voted either in the general or 
the football queen election, which 
shows either a great deal of compla- 
cency or that the students weren't 
properly informed. Whichever the 
cause, it should be corrected on the 
next election. 

The condition of Curtis Adams was 
reported "good" Tuesday at Memorial 
Hospital, where he is convalescing 
from dangerous knife wounds which

eekiy Programs 

Each Thursday afternoon the broad- 
casting class under the direction of 
Dan Kahler presents a fifteen-minute 
program over KSOK. Each member 
of the class takes his turn as program 

LeRoy McDowell was in charge of 
the program which was given three 
weeks ago. Libby Giles acted as the 
announcer. The program subject was 
"The Importance of Voting." It con- 
sisted of three interviews. John Blass 
talked to Dr. Paul Johnson on facts 
about voting and the procedures. In 
an interview by Harold Mullet, Frank 
Crawford, a student who is of voting 
age, gave his opinion of voting. Bud 
Shoemaker expressed his views as a 
future voter when questioned by Le- 
Roy McDowell. 

The program given last Thursday 
was on National Education Week. Mrs. 
Natalie Cashman was program direc- 
tor and Vic Walker was the an- 
nouncer. A script written by Mrs. 
Cashman was given by Libby Giles, 
Frank Crawford, LeRoy McDowell, 
Bud Shoemaker, and John Blass. Fol- 
lowing the script a panel discussion 
was held with all members of the 
class participating. The discussion 
centered around questions such as 
what the students felt that they 
would get out of a college education 
and what courses should be stressed 
in a high school education.

Former Staff Member Dies 

Funeral services were held Novem-

stud^t from 1948 to 1950 and a for- 
mer Tiger Tales staff member. Sur- 
vivors include his mother, Mrs. Min-

an Arkansas City attorney, who was 
a iunior college student in 1940-41 
and Bill, of Kansas City, a student in 

How many fellows realize, when 
they look at their dates and whistle 
either mentally or orally in evaluation 
of the pretty clothes or the new hair 
style the girl is wearing, what is 
behind the designing of these fashions 
that "knock their eyes out?" Not 
many, it seems. 

Well fellows, the next time that 
good looking girl you go with says 
something about the inability of men 
to appreciate women's clothes just 
because you forgot to mention no- 
ticing she was wearing a new dress, 
you might remind her that when she 
looks at a magazine picture showing 
all the new styles, and wishes so 
desperately that she had one just like 
the pictured article, that she is paying 
a tribute, more than likely, to a man. 
It is a fact that about 95 per cent of 
the leading stylists are men. For 
example, the old boy who is the 
epitome of ladies fashions, Christian 
Dior, sets the ladies awhirl by styling 
clothes which flatter the girl. 

Larry Patten, 19 years of age, a 
junior college sophomore, is a young 
man who is climbing toward such 
a worthy post of fashion. Larry de- 
signs and makes women's clothing 
from a suit to a formal as well 
as wedding gowns, and does the job in 
such a manner the girl wearing one 
of his creations is sure to be a hit 
at either a party or an informal 
meeting. The fellows who oggled at 
the beauty of the queens at the coro- 
nation of Alalah XXV should be 
interested in knowing that the gown 
worn by Libby Giles, which really 
set off her beauty, was styled by 
Larry. Among other Ark City per- 
sonalities in Larry's clientele are Gail 
White and Mrs. Hal Innis. 

What had started as a hobby has 
grown in magnificance to the point 
that when a girl or woman wants a 
dress individually styled, she takes 
the problem to Larry Patten. 

But Larry's tailoring skills are not 
limited to ladies dresses. Larry also 
tailors sport coats and shirts for the 
men, and hats for the ladies. The 
latter field is not such an extensive 
nor exploited skill as the others, but 
when Larry's mother couldn't find 
hats to go with a couple of her dres- 
ses' made by Larry, he fixed her up 
with the appropriate chapeau. 

So fellows, the next time you see 
your gal in a dress which leaves you 
ga-ga, remember — a man more than 
likely styled it or at least set the 
style. Larry Patten deserves the best 
of luck in the world of fashion, and 
the appreciation of all male connis- 
seurs of the feminine figure. 

Young Chull Kim, 
Korean Student, 
Expected Here Soon 

Young Chull Kim, brother of Bob 
Kim, who was graduated a year ago, 
has written Dean K. R. Galle that he 
has been issued a passport to leave 
Korea for study in the United States, 
and requesting new certificates of 
admission to the Arkansas City Jun- 
ior College. He hopes to arrive in 
time for the spring semester. 

Kim was expected to enroll in 
September, but was required by a 
new Korean law to complete a period 
of field training with the Republic of 
Korea army prior to his departure. 
Kim will be awarded a scholarship 
at Arkansas City, and will be spon- 
sored for the time he is here by the 
Rotary Club of Arkansas City. 

Kim's father visited Arkansas City 
last summer while on an industrial 
tour of the United States, sponsored 
by the Ford Motor Company. 

Jayhawk Conference 
Lays Grid Plans 
For 1957-58 Season 

Coaches, athletic directors, and 
some deans from the schools in the 
Kansas Jayhawk Conference gathered 
at Arkansas City Tuesday to work 
on the 1957 football schedule. League 
schools included Coffeyville, Independ- 
ence, Parsons, El Dorado, Hutchinson, 
Pratt, Dodge City, Arkansas City, 
and Garden City. Chanute and Iola do 
not play football. 

Representatives from Northern Okla- 
homa Junior College, Tonkawa, a 
frequent opponent on schedules of 
league members, were also invited by 
A. L. Curry, Arkansas City athletic 
director, who arranged the conference. 

Although thhe meeting is an annual 
one for the purpose, the problems 
were enhanced this year by the dis- 
turbance of the local schedules in 
Ark Valley League cities which also 
have junior colleges. Wichita high 
schools are departing from the Valley 
conference at the end of this season, 
and such disruption of schedules 
causes junior college problems. 




Hutch Dragons 
Entertain Tigers 
In Final Game 

Next Friday, November 16, the Juco 
Tigers travel to Hutchinson to meet 
the Blue Dragons in the final foot- 
ball game of the season. 

Hutch has been an in and out team 
in the past. After a series of heart- 
breaking losses, the Tigers will be 
going all out to bring home a victory. 
Last year, Ark City won out over 
the Dragons by a 27 to 12 margin. 
The Cats scored in every quarter. 
In the second quarter, Curt Adams 
gathered in a Hutch lateral and raced 
45 yards to pay dirt. In the final per- 
iod, Gordon Fry blocked a punt and 
fell on the ball in the end zone for a 
touchdown to end scoring. 

In 1954, the Tigers and Dragons 
fought to a 13-13 deadlock, this tie 
causing Ark City to be denied a tie for 
the championship with Coffeyville's 
Ravens, who had been beaten by the 
Arks 13-6. 

The Tigers will hardly be at full 
strength for this game, with two 
usually-starting halfbacks out of ac- 

The outcome of the Dragon-Tiger 
clash will in no way affect the con- 
ference title race, both clubs having 
been eliminated by previous defeats, 
but a win will be interpreted for 
either squad as soothing salve for 
what has otherwise been a disappoint- 
ing season. Coffeyville's Red Ravens 
have clamped their beaks on the con- 
ference bunting with a perfect record 
in the loop.

Cage Opponents Seavers 


Football is just about to wind up 
for this season, as the schedule indi- 
cates, but all is not over as yet. Fri- 
day, November 16, will see the Tigers 
at Hutch for the last seasonal game 
in the Juco Jayhawk Conference for 
ACJC, so let's get the fans all out to 
see that game. 

The boys have had a fairly good 
season, statistic-wise. We observe, 
though, that one of the great weak- 
nesses of the team is passing, as is 
stopping other teams from making 
those aerials which hurt so doggone 
bad. Take the last two games, for ex- 
ample. Both Pratt and Independence 
made terrific passing gains on us. 
Pratt gained 70 yards via the air, 
while we only racked up 19 yards. The 
Independence yardage was unavail- 
able, but it was a cinch that with 
their high percentage of passes com- 
pleted, they did better in yards than 
we did. It seems when we take to the 
skyways, something happens to cause 
the ball to be sidetracked. We hope 
next season will see a stronger Tiger 

passing pack. 


Football may be just about over, but 
the sports season has just begun. With 
basketball coming up, A. C. fans still 
have a great viewing agenda ahead 
of them. The team, which has been 
whipped and beaten, (not literally, of 
couise) into shape by Coach Dan Kah- 
ler, looks a-rarin' to go against Ton- 
kawa in the annual pre-season scrim- 
mage. Although the scrimmage doesn't 
mean just a whole lot as far as the 
final standing tally will show, it will 
give the fans a sneak preview of what 
they can expect this year from the 
well-known, nationally, Tiger basket- 
ball team, so you won't want to rniss 
that one. 




The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tiger basketball squad is to face the 
Tonkawa Mavericks in the annual 
pre-season scrimmages which start 
this coming Monday evening, at Tonk- 
awa. The other scrimmage will be 
held in Ark City one week later, on 
November 26. 

Last year, the records show that 
the Tigers won both games, with the 
one at Tonkawa being a fairly close 
contest, but with the one held on the 
Tigers' home court being won by a 
comfortable margin. 

Proceeds from the gate will be used 
to film Tiger and Bulldog teams in 
rWion for the purpose of improving 
player techniques, and to give fans 
an early look at Tiger prospects. 

Tigers by 13-7 

Pratt's juco Beavers refused, Octo- 
ber 31, to roll over and play dead for 
the Tiger gridmen, and defeated the 
Bengals, 13-7, in a rugged game on 
the Beaver home ground.--. It was an 
upset win for Pratt, doped to lose by 
several touchdowns. 


Right Atmosphere 

Larry Landes (on seeing Marine 
Corps representatives enter the col- 
lege building last Thursday): "This 
surely is the right day for recruiters 
to come around. Grade reports come 
out this morning!" 

Tigers Win Final 
ome Game 

of s 


The Tigers bared their fangs once 
again last Friday night as they beat 
the Pirates of Independence 18-6 in 
the last game of the season to be play- 
ed at Ark City's Curry Field. 

Something seemed to have happened 
to the team, because they showed ex- 
cellent ability in both offense and de- 
fense, in spite of Independence 
aerials which had unerring aim. Coach 
Clint Webber expressed it in these 
words: "The boys just decided they 
could play football." 

The lone Pirate score came in the 
first quarter and was made by Joe 
Deckinser. The conversion attempt 

For Ark City, the first quarter was 
scoreless, but each of the three re- 
maining quarters saw touchdowns 
from the Bengals. None of the conver- 
sion attempts succeeded. 

Tommy Stark carried the first td 
across in the second quarter from the 
three-yard line. Stark also hustled the 
ball over from the 3-yard line in the 
third quarter, and Vic Walker polish- 
ed off the scoring in the fourth from 
near the end zone. 

Statistic-wise, Ark City gained 302 
net. yards, took 18 first downs, at- 
tenmpted nine passes, completing two 
for 27 yards, were penalized 100 yards. 
The Pirates made 101 yards, had seven 
first downs, completed ten out of 19 
passes attempted for 116 yards, were 
penalized 20 yards, and punted five 
times for a 25-yard average.

Round bailers Hold First 
Inlra-Squad Scrimmage 

The Ark City Juco Tigers basket- 
ball team, under the direction of 
Coach Dan Kahler, held their first 
intra-squad scrimmage of the season 
open to the public, Nov. 9. 

The two teams were divided into 
orange and white teams. They got off 
to a slow start but as the game prog- 
ressed, both teams showed signs of 
fire as they battled all the way. The 
half-time score was 31 to 20 in favor 
of the whites. More than four regula- 
tion quarters were played, and scor- 
ing continued throughout. 

Starting line-ups for the whites 
were Rankin and Gaeddart at guards, 
Maynard at center, and Smith and 
Clay at the forward positions. Orange 
team starters included Carter and 
Arellano at guard spots, Palmer at 
center, and Clarahan and Ruffin at 
the forward position?.

Junior College Choir 
Works on Christmas Music 

The Junior College Choir under the 
direction of Kenneth Judd, has began 
work on their Christmas music. 

The selection which Mr. Judd has 
chosen is "The Song of Christmas," 
which takes approximately 17 minutes 
to complete. It includes solo, narrator, 
and choral parts. 

This arrangement was first done by 
Fred Warings' Pennsylvanians over 
NBC in November, 1945. It was 
compiled by Roy Ringwald and ar- 
ranged by Waring. 

The College Choir having increased 
from 30 voices last year to 38 voices 
this year was confronted with the 
problem of a shortage of choir robes. 
Ten new robes have been ordered and 
the choir will receive them in the near

Basketball Brochure Tells 

of Tigers, League 

For the first time, the Arkansas 
City Junior College basketball fans 
are going to be able to find informa- 
tion concerning the players, previous 
coaches, the schedule, and other types 
of information concerning basketball 
simply by purchasing a Tiger basket- 
ball brochure. 

The brochure has been published 
and was placed on sale last Tuesday 
evening. The brochure was worked 
up by Clarence Palmer and Kenneth 
Dabrow, and material was collected 
from the coaches' records, back issues 
of Tiger Tales, and Dan Kahler's 
thesis of 1955 concerning Tiger 

Price of the publication, which is 
duplicated, is 25 cents, and proceeds 
from the sale will be used to help 
finance film for the Tiger game 
movies used as a coaching device. 

A complete roster of the 1956-57 
Tiger squad, as of the publication 
date, is included in the brochure, 
which lists players' class, height, 
weight, age, home high school, and 
years of playing experience, plus 

individual honors earned in high 
school play. Short features are pre- 
sented on the personal histories of 
Athletic Director A. L. Curry, Dan 
Kahler, and Assistant Coach Reece 

A particularly interesting feature 
lists the squad members of the last 
four years and their subsequent 
accomplishments in basketball after 
completing play at Arkansas City. A 
composite Tiger record for Kahlei"'s 
four years as head coach is also 
included, as is a composite 32-year 

Won-Lost records of the six coaches 
who have mentored basketball in the 
32-year history of the sport at Arkan- 
sas City junior college are given, 
including those of L. A. Chaplin's 
1922-23 team; D. C. Stark's 1923-43 
teams (1945-46 records were unfor- 
tunately omitted); Barney Getto's 
squad of 1943-44; C. E. Ruff's war- 
time squad of 1944-45; W. G. (Bunt) 
Speer's men of 1946-52; and Kahler's 
teams of 1952-56. Overall records re- 
veal the Tigers have won 384 games

It seems that we just about didn't 
have this column ready by press time, 
so if we seem just a little skimpy 
this issue, think nothing of it. 

As the gridiron fans, and stars, are 
well aware, a hectic season has just 
been completed, and the Bengals did- 
not come out so bad, considering some 
of the breaks and such that came 
their way. With five won, five lost, 
and one tied, it looks like a fairly 
well balanced season from here. Let's 
hope for a better one next year, 
though. A reminder should be insert- 
ed that the statistics available to the 
T.T. and the picture, with names, of 
the boys who "weathered the storm" 
are all included on page 3. The an- 
nouncement should be included, so 
let's just consider it as such. Really, 
now, it isn't so difficult to lift the 
sheet and turn it to the inside page.. 

Turning now to roundball, let it be 
known that it is not an oversight 
that details of the Tonkawa scrim- 
mage are not included in this issue of 
Tiger Tales. Unfortunately, since the 
game was played Tuesday night, we 
had already gone to press. 

If it's basketball scores and statis- 
tics you want, though, we suggest you 
merely attend the games. We have 
"scads" of them coming up, and a 
really exciting tournament featuring 
8 teams which have proven themselves 
to be basketball's elite squads in this 
region. Attend those games, and you 
won't want to satisfy yourself with a 
mere printed recap. On second thought, 
maybe I had better try to persuade 
you to stay *t home, and get the de- 
tails from this "scandal sheet". Other- 
wise, I won't have any readers for 
my column. 

Remember, as soon as the next 
copy of Tiger Tales comes out, ignore 
the front page, skip the inside pages, 
and read the sports page first. To be 
more speeifi", look for the headline 
"Spotlite on Sports", disregard the

joy the rest of the paper.

Hannibal, Missouri, number two in the 
Arkansas City participate. Hannibal 
was the Nation's second-place team 
when Kilgore, Texas edged them last

City was ranked Number 1 in the 
nation until the upset victory of Gar- 
den City in regional play which 
quashed the hopes of the Bengals to 
participate in their fourth straight 
national tournament. 

Tourney play gets under way at 
2:15 p.m. Thursday, with Hannibal- 
LaGrange meeting the Coffeyville 
Ravens. At 3:30 p.m. the Cameron 
Aggies tussle with the team from 
Pueblo Junior College. In the evening 
session Tonkawa's Mavericks play 
Joplin at 7:30 and the two Cowley 
County entries, St. Josn's Eagles and 
the Tigers, test each other at 9. 

Activity tickets do not admit to 
tourney games. Season tickets are 
$1.50 for students and $3 for "reserved 
adult tickets. Single session admis- 
sions will be fifty cents for students, 
seventy-five cents for adults. 

Dean K. R. Galle said Tuesday he 
expected schedule arrangements to be 
made to enable all students to attend 
games without missing classes. 

Coach Dan Kahler has a fine group 
of basketball candidates this year, 
with eight returning squad members 
from last year. Jim Carter, Jack 
Foster, Sonny Maynard, Charlie Ran- 
kin, Bill Clarahan, Ace Atkinson, and 
Jack Anderson, who have all seen 
action under Coach Kahler in the 
season past, have been working out 
for the past month. 

New squadmen working out so far 
include John Clay from Arizona State; 
Chuck Crosby and Chuck Hottle, both 
from Moberly, Mo. Junior College; 
Julian Arellano and John Smith of 
Newton; Clarence Palmer. Winfield; 
Keith Gaeddert, Don Miller, and Del-

White Christmas 
is Theme For 

Christmas Dance 

"White Christmas" has been chosen 
by the social committee as the theme 
for the annual Christmas-alumni for- 
mal, December 21. 

Christmas cards, silouettes, Christ- 
mas trees, snowflakes, and the song 
White Christmas will be used as the 
basis for the decorating of the junior 
college auditorium for the dance. 

The dance will be held after the 
junior college Tiger and Independence 
basketball game in the auditorium. 
Music and dancing will begin at 10 
p. m. until 1 a. m., with the Gilbert 
Frazzy's fiive-piece combo. 

Committees for the dance will be 
headed by Shirley Reid, social chair- 
man, Glen Smith and Marvin Daniels. 
Eetty Cotter is in charge of the pro- 
gram, Lois Marshall of the decorations 
for the refreshment room. Sharon 
Quick and Dan Lind will do the art 
work. Miss Henrietta Courtright and 
Miss Mary Wilson are the committee 

The dance is for all junior 
college students and their dates with 
the alumni and their dates as guests. 

Decorations are now being made for 
the dance. Anybody who would like 
to help make the decorations can con- 
tact any of the committee. When the 
decorating begins a notice will be 
placed in the bulletin case to notify 
all who would like to help put them

Lloyd Morgan Is 
CTA Radio Engineer 

Lloyd Morgan, juco sophomore and 
KSOK employee, is busy as the prov- 
erbial bee these days at a job he has 
taken on for the City Teachers As- 
sociation. Morgan is acting as radio 
engineer in preparing the weekly CTA 
program, "Your Schools Speak." 

Before Christmas vacation begins 
Morgan must get recorded on tape a 
program by the Junior High School 
Girls Double Sextet, for use Decem- 
ber 16; one by the Junior College 
Choir for presentation December 23; 
a Junior College organ recital sched- 
uled for December 3; and a Senior 
High School Symphonic Choir pro- 
gram set for January 6. 

Morgan is rated as a capable and 
indefatigable engineer by faculty 
people working with him. He is said 
to have spent nearly 18 hours recently 
in preparation of a program featur- 
ing Miss Sylvia Bonnells' Sleeth 
School second graders, who presented 
their program December 2. 

Challenges awaiting Morgan include 
the recording of concerts by the three 
school bands and by the Senior High 
orchestra. Each will provide special 
problems, since each instrument or 
voice must be considered in the plac- 
ing of recording equipment. 

Fourth Annua 
College Dinner 
December 21 

Plans are underway this week to 
stage the junior college's fourth an- 
nual Christmas dinner for the entire 
student body and faculty just before 
the Christmas vacation. It will be 
held Friday noon, December 21, in 
the junior college auditorium. 

A regular dinner will be prepared by 
the members of Mrs. Martha Hansen's 
foods class. The dinner will only cost 
50 cents per person and a ticket may 
be obtained at any time before Mon- 
day. At that time all reservations 
must be complete in order to make 
the final arrangements. 

Liz Banister, program chairman, 
is in charge of the entertainment, 
which will consist of group singing, 
a musical presentation by the college 
choir, and several other numbers. 

Anyone wishing to volunteer their 
services in order to make the dinner 
a success should contact A. E. Maag, 
general sponsor. Ann Harman is the 
chairman of the table decollations 
with the sponsorship of Miss Williams. 
Darlene Rountree is chairman of the 
publicity committee. 

The "banquet assembly" was first 
conceived by the assembly committee 
and tried very tentatively in 1953, 
but caught on so well that it has 
since become a traditional part of the 
Christmas season in Tigerland.

for the annual Christmas-alumni for- 
mal, December 21. 

Christmas cards, silouettes, Christ- 
mas trees, snowflakes, and the song 
White Christmas will be used as the 
basis for the decorating of the junior 
college auditorium for the dance. 

The dance will be held after the 
junior college Tiger and Independence 
basketball game in the auditorium. 
Music and dancing will begin at 10 
p. m. until 1 a. m., with the Gilbert 
Frazzy's hive-piece combo. 

Committees for the dance will be 
headed by Shirley Reid, social chaii'- 
man, Glen Smith and Marvin Daniels. 
Betty Cotter is in charge of the pro- 
gram, Lois Marshall of the decorations 
for the refreshment room. Sharon 
Quick and Dan Lind will do the art 
work. Miss Henrietta Courtright and 
Miss Mary Wilson are the committee 

The dance is for all junior 
college students and their dates with 
the alumni and their dates as guests. 

Decorations are now being made for 
the dance. Anybody who would like 
to help make the decorations can con- 
tact any of the committee. When the 
decorating begins a notice will be 
placed in the bulletin case to notify 
all who would like to help put them 

Among the junior college students 
who donated blood were Paula Love, 
Stanly Gilbert, Howard Kivett, Harley 
Harger, Liz Banister, and Roger 

CTA Radio Engineer 

Lloyd Morgan, juco sophomore and 
KSOK employee, is busy as the prov- 
erbial bee these days at a job he has 
taken on for the City Teachers As- 
sociation. Morgan is acting as radio 
engineer in preparing the weekly CTA 
program, "Your Schools Speak." 

Before Christmas vacation begins 
Morgan must get recorded on tape a 
program by the Junior High School 
Girls Double Sextet, for use Decem- 
ber 16; one by the Junior College 
Choir for presentation December 23; 
a Junior College organ recital sched- 
uled for December 3; and a Senior 
High School Symphonic Choir pro- 
gram set for January 6. 

Morgan is rated as a capable and 
indefatigable engineer by faculty 
people working with him. He is said 
to have spent nearly 18 hours recently 
in preparation of a program featur- 
ing Miss Sylvia Bonnells' Sleeth 
School second* graders, who presented 
their program December 2. 

Challenges awaiting Morgan include 
the recording of concerts by the three 
school bands and by the Senior High 
orchestra. Each will provide special 
problems, since each instrument or 
voice must be considered in the plac- 
ing of recording equipment. 

College Dinner 
December 21 

Plans are underway this week to 
stage the junior college's fourth an- 
nual Christmas dinner for the entire 
student body and faculty just before 
the Christmas vacation. It will be 
held Friday noon, December 21, in 
the junior college auditorium. 

A regular dinner will be prepared by 
the members of Mrs. Martha Hansen's 
foods class. The dinner will only cost 
50 cents per person and a ticket may 
be obtained at any time before Mon- 
day. At that time all reservations 
must be complete in order to make 
the final arrangements. 

Liz Banister, program chairman, 
is in charge of the entertainment, 
which will consist of group singing, 
a musical presentation by the college 
choir, and several other numbers. 

Anyone wishing to volunteer their 
services in order to make the dinner 
a success should contact A. E. Maag, 
general sponsor. Ann Harman is the 
chairman of the table decorations 
with the sponsorship of Miss Williams. 
Darlene Rountree is chairman of the 
publicity committee. 

The "banquet assembly" was first 
conceived by the assembly committee 
and tried very tentatively in 1953, 
but caught on so well that it has 
since become a ti'aditional part of the 
Christmas season in Tigerland. 

Bengals Outscore Mavericks 

The Bengal fans were witnesses to 
a game-type scrimmage November 27, 
as the Tigers wrapped up the com- 
petition 115-73 victors over the Tonk- 
awa squad.

ment choir members have been work- 
ing on recently. 

This program is a part of the prog- 
ram series, "Your Schools Speak", 
which is sponsored each Sunday after- 
noon by the City Teachers Associa-

Christmas has a different meaning 
to everyone, even as children's ideas 
differ from adults. Every part of the 
world celebrates Christmas in a differ- 
ent fashion. In some parts Santa 
Claus is called Saint Nicholas and he 
rides a white horse instead of having 
a sleigh and reindeer, and to others he 
is just a jolly man. 

But no matter what he looks like 
or how he arrives, each child dreams 
of Santa Claus who will bring him 
gifts. Every child, though, will not 
receive a gift and some children don't 
know about Santa Claus and even 
worse, what the true meaning of 
Christmas is. 

If we would leave out the glamour 
of Christmas the season wouldn't have 
much meaning to some people because 
we forget what we are really celebrat- 
ing. Instead of going to bed and 
dreaming of seeing all our presents 
the next morning, we should kneel 
beside our beds and give God a prayer 
of thanksgivings for his son who was 
born into our world on Christmas

With the long awaited Christmas 
holiday just around the corner, many 
junior college students have turned 
their thoughts to what they would 
like dear old Santa Claus to leave in 
their stockings. When some students 
were asked by a reporter what they 
would like to have, to do, or to be, for 
or at Christmas, they gave many var- 
ied replies. Does your Christmas wish 
match any of these? 

Ray Clodfelter— "I would like a 
big bundle of hay to feed to my night- 
mares which I am having over tests." 
Marvin MeGorgary— "Some win-

Junior Colleges 
Seek State Aid 
For Support 

The week of December 2 to 8 was 
observed by some Kansans, including 
those interested in junior colleges, 
as "Junior College Week," proclaimed 
by Gov. Fred Hall, attention of citi- 
zens of Kansas to needs of existing 
junior colleges and to stimulate in- 
terest in their extension. 

Junior college leaders have pointed 
out that the increasing college enroll- 
ments in Kansas will soon be so large 
as to "flood the campuses" of existing 
public and private colleges, and that 
the junior college offers the oppor- 
tunity to provide needed facilities 
and educational experiences at much 
lower costs than can be expected in 
four-year (colleges, and to provide 
them at locations which are near the 
homes of students, thus saving both 
taxpayers and students large money 

Aims of junior colleges are to 
provide the first two years of the 
university course, to give terminal 
technical, vocational, and general 
education to two-year students, and 
provide means of adult education. 

Two pamphlets were issued by 
suppporters of the junior college 
movement in Kansas, one by the 
Public College Association and one 
by the Classroom Teachers committee 
of the State Teachers Association. 
State financial aid, such as is now 
given to elementary and secondary 
schools, is asked for junior colleges, 
which are now supported by local 
taxpayers with only token assistance 
from countv funds.

serve as emotional outlets to relieve 
tensions and enable them to achieve

Juco Ground -Break 
6 Years Ago, Dec. 14 

On December 14, of this year, the 
present junior college building will 
have been a reality instead of a dream 
for six years. The ground-breaking 
ceremony for the present juco building 
took place with Leighton Chapman, 
student council president, and Helen 
Ramsey, class of 1950, representing 
the junior college student body. 

The site before had been the Fifth 
Avenue Hotel which has been reported 
as "the finest hotel this side of the 
Mississippi" at the turn of the 
century. It was the social center of 
Ark City fifty years ago and still is 
as junior college students have many 
social events in the present building. 

It was a cold wintery day when 
townspeople, alumni, faculty, and stu- 
dents gathered to turn the first 
spadefuls of dirt. Many different 
organizations were represented along 
with faculty and juco representatives, 
each with a brand new shovel bor- 
rowed by the Student Council for the

Weber College 
Here Tonight 
To Meet Arks 

The holiday season looked grim to 
Tiger basketball players, facing a 
grueling series of ball games while 
other students dreamed of Santa Claus 
this week. 

Opening the home regular season 
campaign tonight, the Bengals meet 
the touring Weber College cagers 
from Ogden, Utah. The Utahans have 
met Dodge City and Hutchinson in 
the past two nights, and play Garden 
City while enroute home. 

The Independence Pirates, an an- 
cient foe now under tutelage of Bob 
Sneller, a Tiger letterman in juco 
days who returns to pit his charges 
against the representatives of his 
alma mater, will furnish opposition on 
December 21. 

After a short Christmas lay-off, the 
Arks meet their alumni in the annual 
Quarterback Club game December 
28, and mount their horses for an 
invasion of Colorado January 3 to 
meet the Pueblo Indians, then rush 
back home to classes and a trip to 
Wichita to test the Wichita U. Frosh 
at the Roundhouse, January 9. After 
a January 12 home stand against the 
potent Parsons Cards, who so nearly 
floored them in their opener, the 
Tigers settle down to a regular con- 
ference grind. 

Tigers Barely Edge 
Parsons Cards, 81-78 
In Cage Opener 

The Juco Tigers, paced by Sonny 
Maynard's 21 points, managed to pull 
the game against Parsons out of the 
(ire December 4 by a narrow squeak 
of 81 points to the Cardinals' 78. 

It looked as though the Tigers 
should have given up when they were 
trailing by 22 points at one spot of 
the game, but by a miracle of some 
kind, the Bengals fought back to pull 
upward to only a six-point deficit at 
the half mark. Then, in the second 
half, it was nip-and-tuck until the 
Tigers finally filled enough baskets to 
win by a three-point margin at the 
wounding of the final buzzer. 

Top scorer for the Cardinals was 
Forbes who had 20 points, while 
Palmer was runner-up to Maynard 
with 15 points, and Heidebrecht close- 
ly followed with 14 points. 

The Tigers hit 39 per cent from the 
field against Parsons Gl per cent, but 
Ark City was on top in the rebound 
department, grabbing off 49 rebounds. 

gers Take Honors in 8-Team 
Tourney; Cameron Second, 
Coffeyville Third in 3 -Day Play 

The Ark City Tigers' basketball 
team has won a close contest with 
one of its foremost rivals to take 
first place in the Four-State Invita- 
tional Basketball Tournament, Sat- 
urday, as Ark City played host Dec- 
ember 6-8 to seven teams from four 

Ark City played a thrilling game 
all the way against the Cameron Ag- 
gies of Lawton, Oklahoma, and came 
from behind to tie, and eventually 
beat, the Aggies following a 10-point 
deficit at one point in the early part 
of the Tourney's final game. 

Re-capping the tourney action: 
Thursday afternoon, which opened the 
tourney, saw Hannibal-LaGrange the 
second best juco cage team of the na- 
tion from last year, defeated by Cof- 
feyville by a score of 60-47. The se- 
cond game of the tourney, also Thurs- 
day afternoon, ended with another up- 
set when the Cameron Aggies defeat- 
ed the third-rated team in the nation, 
the Pueblo, Colorado, Indians, 63-48. 
The first evening game of the round- 
ball meet resulted in Tonkawa's de- 
feating the Joplin Lions, 70-50, and in 
the nightcap action at 9:15, Ark City 
defeated St. John's of Winfield, 106-66. 

With the advent of the second 
round, the contest became more classi- 
fied as Hannibal, and Pueblo, played 
to see who would get to compete for 
fourth and sixth positions. Pueblo 
coming out on top 65-64 in a game 
which was accented by the excitement 
of a trailing Pueblo coming up to tie 
the score in the last 3 minutes, and 
plunking in the winning basket in 
the last five seconds of the game. 
Also in the Friday afternoon contests, 
Joplin handed St. John's its second 
defeat, with 84-54 as the final score. 
In the evening session, the second 
lap of the tourney started for the 
day as Coffeyville faced a hot Cam- 
eron Aggie five. The Aggies were a 
little too hot, in fact, for the Red 
Ravens, because Coffeyville bowed to 
Lawton 81-73. Arkansas City proved 
to be a tough opponent once again 
:s they downed the Mavericks of 
Tonkawa 6C-57 in a contest which 
had the fans wondering if maybe the 
Bengals were losing just a bit of 
their steam. The Mavericks managed 
to slow down the Tigers, but they 
couldn't quite manage the necessary 
fiower required to outpoint the A. C. 

In the final round of play, which 
determined finishing positions, St. 
John's suffered defeat once again at 
hands of Hannibal by the score of 

57-43. The result was a seventh-place 
Hannibal and a botton-of-the-list St. 
Johns. At 3:30 Saturday afternoon 
Pueblo and Joplin played for fourth- 
place honors, with Joplin coming out 
on top 78-76. This game looked for 
a while as though it might have ended 
as the Pueblo-Hannibal game did; 
with Pueblo once again coming from 
behind to tie and eventually win, but 
even though they managed to tie the 
Trojans, the Idiians coujdn.t quite 
make that necessary basket to take 
the game into overtime, much less 
make the three points necessary to 
win the game. 

Saturday evening at 7:15, the game 
began which would see Coffeyville 
take third-place honors as they de- 
feated Tonkawa 71-55. Tonkawa be- 
came fifth. At 9:00 the same evening, 
the Tigers of Ark City faced a rugged 
and determined squad of Cameron 
Aggies on the court, and out-scored 
them 75-73. 

It sounds simple to say "The Tigers 
out-scored the Aggies 75-73", but it 
was by no means an easy task for 
the Bengals. The score was tied most 
of the game, but when a team led by 
any significant number, it was the 
Cameron Aggies. At one point, they 
led the Bengals by 10 points, but 
the Tigers came back up the long, 
hard road to tie once again. In all, 
the game was tied 20 times. 

The game, which had fans on the 
edges of their seats, and was giving 
ulcers and heart trouble to some of 
the weaker spectators, came to a very 
thrilling climax with the score tied 
in the last three minutes of play, and 
both teams were trying their utmost 
to get the ball into their baskets. 
Finally, in the last 30 seconds, the 
Tigei's managed to break away from 
the opposition ias (Sonny Maynard 
sank two free throws which won the 
game, and the first-place trophy, for 
Arkansas City. 

It can be said, without editoralizing, 
that one fact obvious to fans from 
both sides wias that the Cameron 
Aggies, who had given the Tigers one 
of their most difficult wins, were 
every bit as good as the Bengal squad, 
and that they were playing a very 
fine game of basketball.

close, the big question confronting 
many of us was those pesky New 
Year's resolutions.

the new year better. It seems though, 
that we are a little careless in keeping 
them, and many have already been

gave when asked this traditional 
question: just before Christmas, when 
resolution was high: 

Robert Shire: I resolve to keep the 
ones I made lust year. (Don't 
we all?) 
Lewis Cross: I resolve to Live, Love 

and Let live. 
Rose Ann Dickerman: I resolve to

for writing letters to G. T.

College Printers Are 
Mechanical Staff 



A most important, but least obvious 
portioin of the Tiger Tales crew is the 
mechanical staff which produces the 
printed edition. Foremen for the junior 
college printing department are Don 
(lark, linotype foreman, Carl Whit- 
ford, production foreman, a>id Jack 
Hockenbury, press foreman. Without 
the competent work of these three 
students the production of the Tiger 
Tales would be impossible. 

Don has had six years of printing 
experience. He stated that without the 
linotype machine everything would 
have to be set by hand. 

Carl is responsible for the paper 
coming out on time. He sees to it that 
everything runs smoothly. Carl has 
also had six years of printing experi- 
ence and assists Don with his duties 
as lino foreman. 

Jack does most of the hand setting 
such as headlines. He gets the form 
ready to put on the press and runs 
th? press. A student must have four 
years of printing experience before he 
is allowed to run the press. 

These senior members of the staff 
are assisted by high school and junior 
high printing students with less ex-

House Built by 

Juco Carpenters Begins 

To Take Shape 

Only the frame work is there; it 
doesn't even boast a roof, but the 
house the Junior College carpenter 
students are constructing gives the 
appearance of a house whose features 
would be welcome in any area. 

Exterior sides of the house are of 
lap-side cedar. The front is of pine. 
The house features attractive corner 
windows. The entrance hall extends 
through the center of the house to all 
rooms. On one side are the kitchen 
and living room; two bedrooms and 
bath are on the other. Other features 
will be perimeter heating, three clos- 
ets, and a kitchen with plenty of 

Interested students watch its pro- 
gress. The place of construction is on 
West Fifth Avenue. When completed, 
the modern attractive house will be 
sold to the highest bidder and moved 
to the new owner's location. 

Students who wish to learn carpen- 
try may enroll for the spring term 
course, and participate in the project. 
L. A. Chaplin is instructor.

Ark City Bengals defeated them, 71- 
03, January 3, at Pueblo. 

The scoring of Arellano, with 22

last year, 84-67, in December 18's con- 

The Iola Red Devils, who had four

Two Juco Students 
Help Plan Convention 

David MeGlasson and Don Baker, 
both members of the college chapter 
of the Distributive Education Club of 
America, with their sponsor, Howard 
Clark, will go to Emporia State Teach- 
ers College, January 12, to help stu- 
dents from other schools in Kansas 
plan the annual convention of the Bus- 
iness Education Clubs of Kansas. 

The convention, to be held February 
1 1-12, at Emporia, will center around 
various contests, such as sales demon- 
stration, window display judging, job 
application, show card writing, store 
mathematics, and several other activ- 
ities related to the distributive field. 
The Ark City Club will enter one mer- 
chandise manual and one store manual 
which have been constructed in class 
during the current semester. Each stu- 
dent is required to compile each of 
these manuals. A club activity man- 
ual, or scrarpbook, will ilso be enteed. 
Students plan to enter several of the 
major contests. The convention is not 
all work, as the two Juco students will 
help plan for the dance and banquet 
which are part of the convention. The 
club has made reservations at the 
Broadview Hotel in Emporia. 

Mr. Clark and the two students plan 
to leave early enough Saturday morn- 
ing so that they will have time to visit 
the business department, and to take 
a tour of the campus. 

Observing actions of the feminine 
set around Juco, it is appropriate to 
quote the philosopher who said, "The 
man who can understand the rnind of 
a woman isn't born yet, and both his 
parents are dead." No offense, gals... least, not TOO much.

Earl Clayton 
Is Winner in 




Earl Clayton, freshman from Ar- 
kansas City, was named student coun- 
cil president over Fred Riemer, Little 
Falls, Minn., in the general election 
held Friday, February 1. 

Clayton, a graduate of the local 
high school, has served 4 years with 
the Air Force previous to enrolling 
at juco last fall. 

This is the first year, since the new 
system of electing the student council 
president, that it has been necessary 
to have a primary election. Always 
before one of the nominees has 
received a majority of the votes, or, 
as the last few years, only two per- 
sons have presented themselves as 
candidates for election. 

To be eligible for the presidency, 
one must be a first semester fresh- 
man, must promise to continue his 
course to graduation, show an active 
interest in school affairs, and carry 
out his official duties. 

Clayton and Riemer won places on 
the ballot in a general election held 
January 30, outdistancing Chuck 
Shepard, Clay Center, who ran a close 
third. Only twenty votes separated 
the leading from the trailing can- 

Clayton will succeed Jack Anderson, 
who served during 1956,

There was group singing led by Max 
Gragert and Alan Maag. Margaret 
Schnelle and Max Gragert assisted on 
the organ and piano. Mike Mayberry 
entertained the audience with a trum- 
pet solo. 

Each candidate was presented and 
came to the front to present his plat- 
form. They were Earl Clayton, Fred 
Riemer and Chuck Shepard. Some 
of the points brought out in their talks 
included the lack of money, lack of 
student participation in school assem- 
blies and social affairs, and poor 
school spirit. Each candidate vowed 
to work closer with the students and 
faculty and to improve overall condi-

Kats Start Loop 

Challengers, Lose to One 

Since beginning conference play on 
January 12, the Tigers have estab- 
lished a record of five conference wins 
against no conference losses. In non- 
conference games since that date, 
they have a 3-2 record, having been 
beaten only by the Coffeyville Red

Cardinals Clawed, Chewed. 
Spat Out by Tigers, 88-69 

Parsons Cardinals fell to the Tigers 
eagers 88-69, January 12, when they 
came to Ark City to challenge the 
Bengals' prowess as cage champions. 

High scorer in the non-conference 
game for the Tigers was Del Heid- 
ebrecht with 20 points. High man for 
the Parsons squad was Johnson, with 
a total of 22 points. 

The game was never close after 

first 15 minutes, as the Tigers went 

from a half-time score of 47-30 on to 

an easy victory. 


Red Ravens Peck Tigers 
Scratch Out 62-59 Win 

The Tigers' standing in non-con- 
ference play was lowered just a mite 
when Coffeyville's Red Ravens clawed 
the Bengals to a 62-59 loss January 
15. And, to add insult to injury, 
the site of the beating was the Tigers' 
own lair. 

The Ravens played an excellent 

game of ball and showed expert 

handling of the sphere throughout 

the contest. 


Visiting Conquistadors 
Conquered By Jungle Cats 

To open conference play of the sea- 
son, the Tigers sank their teeth into 
the Dodge City College Conquistadors, 
and tore out a 68-55 win on January 

The Tigers were in the lead all the 
way, and at the half had achieved 
a lead of 38-27. Franklin made a good 
scoring show for the Conqs with 16 
points, but Heidebrecht led with 27 
points for the contest. 

Boys who saw action in the first 
two conference games include Heid- 
ebrecht, Maynard, Clarahan, Smith, 
Carter, Crosby, Ruffin, Miller, Shoe- 
maker, and Anderson. 

Tigers Ride Bronco; Final 
Tally Shows Win of 95-60 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers defeated another up-and- 
coming cage squad when they downed 
the Garden City Bronc Busters 95-60, 
January 19. 

The home-court contest sta) ted with 

an 8-0 lead for the Tigers in the 
first two minutes of play, and after 
that the contest was almost a 'lead- 
pipe cinch', with a half-time lead of 

During the early portion of the 
game, Tiger-man Jim Carter sustain- 
ed a knee injury when he plowed into 
the stage. The injury to the cartilage 
put him out of action for the three 
following games. 

Tiger Cagers Blast 
Pratt Beavers at Home 

The Tigers easily disposed of the 
Pratt Beavers, Tuesday, January 22, 
in a Western Dvision conference game, 
78-50. Except for some close scolding 
in the first half, the Tigers had the 
game pretty well under contr-ol. They 
led 28-21 at halftime. 

Four Bengals hit in double figures 
with Del Heidebrecht leading the way 
with 8 fielders and 8 free throws for 
a total of 24 points. Sonny Maynard 
contributed 17 points, while Bill Clar- 
ahan and Don Miller added 11 each.

Dragons, Tigers Tangle; 
Bengals Win Easily 

In a highly ranked contest between 
the nation's number three and the 
nation's number four-ranked teams, 
number four, Hutchinson, lost to num- 
ber three, the Ark City Tigers, by a 
score of 87-57, January 25. 

The game proved to be rated too 
highly as to the closeness of the out- 
come, but, as Coach Dan Kahler said, 
the Tigers must have been "fired up" 
to play such excellent ball against a 
team such as the Dragons, and to 
win with such "comparative ease." 

Pirates Scuttled, Sunk 
By Fierce Tiger Raid 

Independence Pirates joined the rank 
of teams who have fallen twice be- 
neath the ferocious clawing of the 
Ark City Tigers when they faced the 
Bengals on Independence territory and 
lost, 63-58, January 29. 

Independence played a delaying 
game throughout, and at one point 
in the first half led by seven points. 
However, the Tigers came ahead with 
enough vim, vigor and vitality to take 
a 4-point lead in the last couple of 
minutes and from there on played a 
bit of stalling-ball themselves. 

Tigers Devour GrizzPes 70-67 

The Arkansas City Junior College 
Tigers defeated the El Dorado Griz- 
zlies 70-67 in the Grizzlies' own "stom- 
pin' grounds" on February 1, in a con- 
test which wrapped up an undefeated 




The Tigers continue their quest 
for the Western Division title when 
they travel to Hutchinson Tuesday 
night for a conference tilt with the 
Blue Dragons. The Dragons have an 
exceptional team this year, but pos- 
sibly not much better than their team 
last year. Previously this season when 
the two teams met, the Ark unit 
was the victor 87 to 57. 

The Bengals host the Eagles of St. 
Johns, February 12 in a non-con- 
ference contest. The Johnnies have 
usually given the Tigers a run for 
their money, and this year should be 
no exception to the rule. 

Next the Kats hit the league trail 
again, hosting the powerful Pratt 
Beavers. Earlier this season, Pratt 
proved to be a worthy contender, 
playing a tough game but going down 
in defeat at the hands of the potent 
Kahler crew, 78-72. 

The Tigers are currently leading 
the Western Division after the first 
round of play. Their consecutive wins 
over, Garden, Dodge, Hutchinson, and 
Pratt gave them four straight wins 
and put them on top in speedy fash- 
ion. Huch, after losing to the Tigers 
dropped to second place.

The Bengals were trailing at half- 
time 32 to 25, but pulled the game 
out of the fire, aided much by high- 
scorer Del Heidebrecht's 25 points. 

The victory kept the Tigers in the 
lead in conference play, and helped to 
strenghten their third-place national 

Red Devils Are Victims 

The Iola Red Devil five became a 

two-time victim of the Bengals, 65 to 

53, in a game here January 26. The 

Kahlermen had lost their fine edge of 

the previous night, and experienced 

some early difficulty. 

Bengals Are Edged by Ravens 

With an outburst in the remaining 
minutes of a nip and tuck game, the 
Coffeyville Red Ravens bested the Ti- 
mers 61-55, for the second time this 
season. With 5 minutes remaining 
the Bengals enjoyed a 53-50 lead, but 
could only score two points in the re- 
maining time. That, and other factors, 
proved to be the downfall of the Kats. 
They had led at halftime, by a single 
point, 29-28.

Tigerama Date 
Set For April 5 

Plans for Tigerama began going 
full blast Monday, when the Student 
Council decided on April 5 as the date 
for the annual spring party. 

Earl Clayton, newly elected stu- 
dent council president, presided at the 
special meeting called Monday, Feb- 
ruary 18. The purpose of the meeting 
was to decide the date for Tigerama. 
This problem arose because of the 
lateness of Easter this year. In past 
years, it has been the custom to avoid 
major social events during the season 
of Lent and to have the party a week 
after Good Friday. But due to a con- 
flict with the high school's social 
events this date was closed, and the 
council and sccial committee chose 
April 5 as the next most feasible date. 

Part of the purpose Tigerama is to 
interest high school students, in this 
area in attending the junior college, 
and a late May date would interfere 
with this plan.

Male Glee Club 
For Junior College 

Kenneth Judd, music instructor, has 
announced his intention of forming an 
all men's giee club adding to the list 
of junior college musical organiza- 

The fact that there are substantial 
numbers of both tenors and basses, 
was one factor in his decision. In most 
cases, Judd says, tenors are seriously 
outnumbered, hindering plans for such 
an organization. 

Mr. Judd has planned to order new 
music for the group to add to his 
present material. 

Those who will make up the new 
group include tenors Max G r &g ei 't, 
Phil Buechner, John Gay, Jack Selan, 
Wendell Bowman, Lewis Hubbard, El- 
bert Brazle and Albert Rowe. 

Basses faor the group are, Lewis 
Cross, Duane Houdek, Verle Good- 
night, Leon Fluis, Robert Shire, Mari- 
on Jenista, Harold Mullet, Charles 
Brashear,., Chester Green,. Gene Nor- 
ton, and Frank Ryman. 

Margaret Schnelle will be accompa-

Arks Continue 
Quest for 
Division Title 

The Tigers continue conference play 
as they travel out West for a twin 
bill with the usually strong Dodge 
City and Garden City quintets, in 
Thursday and Saturday games, on 
February 21 and 23. Earlier this year 
the Bengals showed great potential in 
downing both Dodge and Garden, but 
must win all remaining games to win 
or tie for the conference crown. 

Winfield is the scene of action when 
the St. Johnnies have showed compet- 
itive spirit in their playing and in the 
February 12 meeting of these two 
powers, Ark City was the victor 52- 
42, though the Johnnies went down 
10G-66 when they met the Arks in 
the preseasorrtourney here. 

Closing out league play, the Bengals 
play host to the El Dorado Grizzlies, 
in their final home game of the season. 
Presently the Grizzlies are one of the 
lower teams in the division, but judg- 
ing from the last game these two 
played, this tilt should prove to be a 
real thriller. Their February 1 meet- 
ing showed the Grizzlies being edged 
in a tough battle, 70-67.

Many things could be said of the 
recent fiascos of the fumbling five 
of Ark City, but instead let's look at 
why the boys are "cold". 

Some say the morale has been low- 
ered by releasing a star player. This 
much-criticized action has brought a 
good deal of pressure to bear on 
Coach Dan Kahler. 

Let's remember that the Tiger team 
has been a strong squad for the past 
few years. That top-slot has drawn 
heavy fire from opponents. It is impos- 
sible to win all the time, especially 
when you're "being laid for". 

The teams in the past have proven 
that the all-important morale comes 
not from playing with the right indi- 
viduals, but from playing together the 
suort they loved and playing it well. 
Players came and went, but they still 
held their place as a TEAM. 

Coach Kahler has built the team in- 
to what it is and has held it there 
through his own method of selection 
and training. He has kept the stan- 
dards high. Are we asking him now 
to lower the standards that helped to 
make one of the nation's best juco 
cage squads? 

I say, emphatically, NO! Sports 
fans, true sportsmen, are not for 
lowering standards in .sports. The 
game of living comes first, and one 
of its basic, and most inflexible, stan- 
dards is the necessity to distinguish 
between right and wrong. Sports. are 
secondary. They should make better 
citizens and not be a channel through 
which wrong may go un-punished. 
Participation in sports is a privilege 
and should be treated as such. 

Sports were created for honest 
competition, in this case for SCHOOL 
competition and not for town glory. 

Let's keep our standards high, and 
just good, clean competition as our 

Number 2 Western team meets the 
sixth place team in the conference 
scramble and the third and second 
place te^ms tangle in the lower brac- 
ket pairine-s. Regular season records 
do not qualify a team for participation 
in the national me»t, as was demon- 
strated last year when the Arks, rated 
Number 1 in the nation throughout 
the season, lost to Garden City in the 
regional play-offs. 

In a last minute spurt, the Hutch- 
inson Blue Dragons pulled one out of 
the fire, sending the Tigers down to 
defeat, in a thriller, 54-48. This was 
the first loss for the Arks in Western 
Division competition, and sent the 
Dragons into first place by a half- 
game margin. 

The Tigers were held to 19 points 
during the entire second half, one of 
the lowest outputs of the season. Usu- 
ally they are at full strength and 
ready to go by the second half. 

Their lethal scoring attack was 
effectively stopped by a strong Drag- 
on defense. Sonny Maynard was the 
top scorer for Ark City with 12 points 
the only Tiger to score in double fig- 

"The Dragons hit 50 per cent of 
their field goals in the first half, 
yet Ark City was ahead 29-27 at inter- 
mission. Any team has to play a ter- 
rific game to overcome that kind of 
shooting", Coach Dan Kahler stated. 

As in the Coffeyville game offensive 
mistakes took their toll, the Tigers 
kicking away the ball 12 times in the 
second half.

Barbara Lemert, freshman, was 
crowned basketball queen for 1957, 
March 1, preceding the game between 
Ark City and El Dorado. 

Marcia Lodge, freshman, and Kay 
Winegarner, sophomore, were her at- 
tendants. The three girls were nomin- 
ated by the basketball team and Bar- 
bara was chosen in a general election 
February 28. 

Barbara, Marcia, and Kay were es- 
corted on to the main floor of the 
auditorium gvm by their escorts, Jim 
Carter, Chuck Crosby, and Bill Clar- 
ahan, respectively. Helen Shoemaker 
opened the letter revealing the queen's 
identity and gave the queen's crown to 
Carter, who in turn placed it on Bar- 
bara's head. 

Nancy Poore gave the attendant's 
crowns to Crosby and Clarahan, who 
made the presentations. Mrs. Bessie 
Ziegler presented Barbara with a 
bouquet of yellow mums and Shirley 
Reid presented her with the tradition- 
al basketball necklace, gifts from the 

student body. 

The queen and her attendants view- 
ed the game from a throne placed on 
the stage.

council and social committee members 
began their full-scale preparations 
for the April 5 party, in a joint meet- 
ing Feb. 27. 

Tigerama is the top party of the 
junior college social calendar, as far 
as students are concerned, and serves 
also as a "get-acquainted" party for 
high school seniors in the area who are 
considering enrollment in junior col- 
lege. Approximately 15 high school 
senior class groups are usually guests 
of the student body for the event. 

The council voted to rent a juke 
box for the clubroom, for use during 
the school day and for evening socials. 
An agreement with a local dealer pro- 
vides five-cent plays and frequent 
changes of records. The old Box was 
sold for $15. 

Additional furniture for the club- 
room, consisting of five divans and

Top Marriage Prospects 

Say, are you looking- for a suitable 
husband or wife? Dr. Paul Johnson's 
sociology class used the Marriage 
Prediction Scale by Ernest W. Bur- 
gess and Leonard S. Cottrell, to find 
the ideal girls and guys. 

The man marks his rating under the 
heading, "Items for Prospective Hus- 
bands". In a similar way, the pros- 
pective bride marks her score under 
the heading, "Items for Prospective 
Wives". Then the couple should an- 
swer the questions under the heading, 
"Items Common to both Husband and 
Wife", marking their rating on each. 
Adding the three totals, husband's 
score, wife's score, and items common 
to both, will give the "marriage pre- 
diction score". Several pages of ques- 
tions have varying point values. 

For scores above 700 there is a 98 
per cent chance that the couple will 

be happy. If between 540 and 700, 

there is a strong probability that the 
couple will be above average in hap- 

piness. But if the "prediction score" 
is below 300, the chances of unhap- 
piness are almost 100 per cent. 

Kay Winegarner found an ideal 
prospective husband with whom she 
scored 730 points. Leon Fluis found 
the perfect match that helped him 
score 650 points. Gordan Lack had a 
partner who helped him rack up 565 
points. A total of 615 was scored by 
Beverly Toms and an unknown friend. 

The highest averages for five inter- 
views were scored by Leon and Kay 
With 600 and 602 points, respectively. 

Other students with high average 
scores were Jack Anderson, 587, Del 
Humphries, 597, Vera Hottle, 573, 
Cora Lea Yates, 519, John Gay, 584, 
and Robin Thorpe, 540. 


Mildred Brazle, sophomore, and 
Kenneth Snyder were united in mar- 
riage, Friday morning, March 1, at 
the home of the bride's parent?.

S.S. Examinations 
Slated for April 

Prospective selective-service victims, 
here is your chance to keep out of the 
infantiw for a while longer. 

Selective service qualification ex- 
aminations will be administered to any 
students registered for the draft who 
wish to take them on April 18, in the 
Arkansas City Junior College. 

Application forms for those who 
wish to take the test may be made 
now in the dean's office. 

The tests are given to determine 
eligibility for deferment of college 

Students who make the required 
score or over may be deferred from 
service call until they have finished 
their college courses. Students re- 
ceiving below the percentage neces- 
sary are neither helped nor hindered 
because their test scores are simply 

The junior college is one of the 
authorized testing centers. Selective 
service exams are received from Chi- 
cago, administered by the juco, and 
then sent back to Chicago where the 
tests are checked and scored. The re- 
sults of the passing scores are sent 
to the respective draft boards, and 
students with passing percentages 
may be deferred for the duration of 
their college course at the discretion 
of ^he boards. 

The selective service tests are ad- 
ministered twice per year, but were 
excluded last December because of 
lack of applications for the exams. 

Dean K. R. Galle was in Manhattan, 
February 25 and 26 to attend a 
meeting of Kansas Public Junior 
Colleges Association. A business meet- 
ing was held Monday afternoon to 
discuss legislature. Galle met Tues- 
day with representatives from differ- 
ent Kansas schools to discuss school 
proHems and ways to co-ordinate the 
programs of junior colleges with four- 
year colleges

Members of the office machines 
class, under the supervision of Miss 
Mary Wilson, instructor, are learning 
to operate 14 different business ma- 
chines in the course for business ma- 
jors, offered by the commerce 
department in junior college. 

This class is designed to give pro- 
spective secretaries and other business 
minded students a preveiw of what 
they would expect to find in a modern 
office. The machines on which training- 
is offered to the students include the 
electric typewriter, spirit duplicator, 
mineograph, mimeoscope, Burroughs 
fu;l-keyboard adding machine, ten-key 
standard adding machine, Friden 
calculator, Monroe key-drived elec- 
tric calculator, Burroughs comptom- 
eter, hand operated rotary calculator, 
voicewriter, and a posting machine. 

Each student is assigned to a dif- 
ferent machine for a period of two 
weei.s, after which the class is rotated 
to give . everyone experience on each 
machine. - 

Besides mastering the machines, 
the students have frequent guest 
speakers and take short field trips to 
some of the local offices to observe 
employees performing their daily 
tasks. Miss Wilson feels that this is 
almost as important as the class work 
because the students learn what 
actually takes place in an office. 

R. A. Brown and John Peck of 
the Home National Bank, recent vis- 
itors to the class, pointed out the 
importance of not only good academic 
! rades, but also stressed development 
of gcod character traits. This is 
important because to hold a job an • 
employee must have a neat appearance 
be punctual, and above all else, prove 
his honesty and discretion in keeping' 

the secrets of the firm. 

An electric mimeograph was demon- 
strated in class recently by a manu- 
facturer's representative. He pointed 
out the improved features of the 
electric machine over the hand-oper- 
ated one. The electric mimeograph 
can be set to run from 80 to 180 
copies per minute. 

A student who completes this course 
should be able to quickly adjust 
himself to like machines in business, 
offices, thus improving his employ- 
ability, Miss Wilson believes. 

Dramatics Class Presents 
"The Thing" in Pep Meeting 

Juco students saw the first in a 
dramatic class series of one-act plays 
last Friday morning in the pep as-

The drama, entitled "The Thing", 
starred Del Humphries and Howard 
Kivett. Prompter's position was filled 
by Burchie Baber, and Duane Houdck 
handled lighting. 

Accoi"ding to Dan Kahler, dramatics 
coach, A.C.J.C. students will next be 
able to see "Smokescreen", a melo- 
drama with Burchie Baber playing 
the female lead. 

Juco Students Speak 
To Lions Club Members 

Burchie Baber, sophomore from 
Arkansas City, and Rex Ling, fresh- 
man from Melbourne, Australia, were 
featured speakers at the Lions Club 
meeting Tuesday, February 26. 

Burchie gave one of her humorous 
readings, entitled "I Like Men", and 
Rex spoke on his childhood and youth 
in -China, how he was forced to leave 
his homeland by the Communists, his 
immigration to Hong Kong, and later 
years in Australia. 

Rex related how he learned of Ark- 
ansas City Junior College through 
Alice Lee, a former ACJC student, 
and his sister who attends college at 
Wichita University. He informed the 
group that the U. S. was just about 
what he expected it to be. His expect- 
ations were formed from American 
books he had read. Rex also says he 
likes it here. 

Silverton Assembly Speaker 

Dr. Douglas Silverton, speaker and 
world traveler, gave an interesting- 
and humorous address to the students 
pnd faculty in a special lyceum 
Wednesday, March 6. He was also a

Bengals at Regional Meet Tonight 

State Title at 
Stake Monday in 
Match with Coffeyville 

Two important cage events face 
the Tigers in the next two weeks. 
First is the regional tourney which 
is now in progress at Dodge City. 
Last night, Hutchinson met El Dorado 
in the tourney opener, and Dodge 
City took on Pratt in the nightcap 
action. The Tigers left early today 
for Dodge City. 

Ark City faces Central of McPher- 
son tonight, the semifinals will be held 
tomorrow night, and the finals are 
scheduled for Saturday evening. 

Coming up next Monday evening 
here at home is the first playoff game 
between the Coffeyville Red Ravens 
and the ACJC Bengals. The Red Ra- 
vens are the Eastern Division champs, 
and the victors of two regular season 
games with the Tigers. They will play 
for the state juco title held by the 
Arks, best two of three. 

Both teams proved very successful 
in season play. So successful, in fact, 
that both are picked to win their re- 
spective regional tournaments. How- 
ever, so stiff is the competition that 
either team could fail to attain the 
chance to compete in the national 

In seasonal play, Arkansas City has 
a slightly better record than Coffey- 
ville. A. C. has a standing of .900, 
While Coffeyville has only a .800 per-

Fifth Straight 
League Crown 

Coach Dan Kahler's Tigers grabbed 
their fifth straight conference ciown 
as El Dorado fell to a fighting Ark 
City five on the court by a score of 
91-66 in a contest March 1, held at the 
Ark City aud-gym. 

The Bengals started to an early 
lead, held a doubled-score lead all the 
first half, and in the second quarter 
even trebled the score twice. 

After piling up a half-time lead of 
47-22, the Bengals went on to take 
the final game of the season in non- 
tourney play. The win over El Dorado 
placed the Tigers in undisputed pos- 
session of title of the Western Divi- 
sion of the Kansas Public Junior Col- 
lege Basketball Association. 

Players who saw service in the title 
bout included Del Heidebrecht, Sonny 
Maynard, Bill Clarahan, John Smith, 
Dave Dunbar, Jack Anderson, Jim 
Carter, Don Miller, Chuck Crosby, 
Bud' Shoemaker, Bob Ruffin, Ace 
Atkison, John Dabrow, Ken Dabrow, 
George Caven, Don Stansbarger, and 
Larryl Hutchins. 


Arks Ride Broncks 
98-73, in Home Range 

The Tigers clinched at least a tie 
for the Western Division crown when 
they smashed the Garden City Broric 
Busters 99-79. February 23, in the 
Bronc's corral. This was third loop vie- 
tory in five days for the Kahler crew, 
as they had previously beaten the 
Pratt and Dodge City fives in red hot 
W^tem Division battles. 

Both teams were hot from the field, 
with the Tigers hitting 34 of 63 field 
goals for a creditable 54 per cent. 
They hit 77.5 per cent of free thi-ows 
attempted, while the Broncs hit 63 per 
cent from the charity stripe and made 
23 «f 50 fielders for 46 vev cent. 

The big guns for the Bengals were 
Del Heidebrecht and Bill Charahan. 
Heidebrecht tossed in 11 fielders and 
9 free throws for 31 points, while 
Clarahan hit 10 field goals and 4 free 
tosses for a total of 24 points. Dave 
Dunbar chipped in 14 points. 

Ark City had a halftime lead of 
47-36, with Heidebrecht and Clarahan 
accounting for 31 of the Tiger total. 
Hummer was top scorer for the 
Bronco, hittine 15 points, with John- 
son closely following with 16 points.

The Bengals did it again! Coach 
Danny Kahler's boys pulled in their 
fifth consecutive win of the western 
Division title. 

The boys came through the season 
with flying colors, but we do sort of 
wonder if it might not have been bet- 
ter. Specifically, we wonder how the 
outcome would have gone if the ball 
hadn't been given away so many times 
during some of the games. First place 
nationally, maybe? Of course, that 
ranking of last year leaves a bitter 
taste in our mouth, what with losing 
even the regional. Oh, well, you can't 
win them all! 

Incidentally, it's spring again, tour- 
ney time, and "Poppa" Art Kahler is 
back in town. "Poppa", who lives in 
Pennsylvania, was a famous Ark City

Tigers Edge Conqs 
69-67 in Overtime 

In- a hair-raising overtime finish, 
February 21; the Tigers Dulled out 
a thriller over the Dodge City Conqs, 
in a Western Division contest, 69-67. 
Tied up at the end of regulation time, 
the Tigers forged, ahead, and remain- 
ed there, to assure the victory. 

Ark City had a slow and low-scor- 
ing first half. The second half showed 
them catching fire and scoring 45 
noints, almost twice as much as in 
the first half. Dodge City had a half- 
time lead of 30-24. 

Sonny Maynard and Bill Clarahan 
were top scorers for the Tigers. May- 
nard collected 19 points with Clarahan 
closely following with 18 points. Del 
Heidebrecht was next in line with a 
total of 14 points. :. 

Bengals Bounce Eagles 
For Win Number 22 

In a rather loosely played game at 
Winfield, the Tigers picked up win 
number 22 February 25, at the expense 
of the St. John Eagles, 76-47. The 
game was fairly close in the first half 
as the game was tied up six times. 
Then Ark City slowly forged ahead to 
hold a 37-22 lead at intermission. 
Both teams were not playing up to ex- 
pectations, but both had played three 
games in the span of one short week. 
If the game were played under other 
circumstances, the fans might have 
been in for a much faster and harder 
played ball game. 

Bill Clarahan was tops in the scor- 
ing department, netting 17 points. 
Delbert Heidebrecht hit 14 points for 
runner-up position.

Pays off for 
Student Socials 

Junior college students enjoyed their 
social of last Friday night to the hilt, 
a crowd varying from 50 to 100 per- 
sons being present during the major 
portion of the evening. It was the first 
informal event of the school year 
not a after-game affair. 

The social was the outcome of stu- 
dent dissatisfaction with the extent of 
social affairs, and the unwillingness 
of the social committee to accept re- 
sponsibility for affairs, in addition to 
the major formal parties. 

Harold Mullett was appointed by 
Earl Clayton, president of the student 
council, to serve temporarily as a 
member of the student council social 
committee, charged with organization 
of after-game and informal socials. 
He organized the after-game paity of 
March 1, and had set up plans for the 
March 15 affair when his father died 
last week. Sharon Quick, social com- 
mittee member, took over for Mullett 
Friday. Permanent organization for 
such events awaits action by the coun-

Travels to Kansas City 

The college auto mechanics class, 
accompanied by their instructor, Les- 
ter C. Griffith, made a trip to Kansas 
City to attend the Kansas City Auto 
Show, which was held March 13 and 

Gary Dowler, one of the students 
making the trip, told this reporter that 
"the most interesting thing to him was 
the visit to the Fisher Body Chevro- 
let Assembly Line in Leeds, in the 
outskirts of Kansas City." He said 
he was surprised to see so many for- 
eign cars at ths auto show. There 
were also four expermental models 
on display there. 

Those making the trip, in addition 
to Mr. Griffith, included Harley Har-

Maynard were named to the Regional 
Tourney Aall-Star Team by the eight 
coaches of the teams represented at 
the Region VI Tourney played at 
Dodge City, March 6-9. 

The two Tigers were rated unmber

based on the individual's play durng 
the season and at the tourney.

Brave Bandsmen 
Toot for Tigers 
At Hutchinson 

Undaunted by past bus breakbowns, 
bitter disappointment at the state 
play-offs at Coffeyville, threatened 
dust storms, or spring blizzards, the 
orange-clad members of the junior 
college band moved to Hutchinson 
Tuesday to help the Tiger basket- 
bailers in their quest for national 

The trip was still a formidable one, 
for at 11 a. m. Tuesday, Dirctor 
August Trollman was still looking for 
one more car to transport his team 
of music makers. 

The band suffered most on the re- 
turn from Dodge City, where it had 
gone on Saturday to help hoist the 
Bengals over the top in their cham- 
pionship tilt against Hutchinson. 
Successful in that endeavor, the mu- 
sicians piled into the school bus and 
headed homeward. Something gave 
way as the bus entered the city limits 
of Wichita, and the tired footers had 
to delay that precious shut-eye for 
an extra hour or so while Director 
Trollman reported their difficulty to 
Dean K. R. Galle and then scurried 
around Wichita rounding up a com- 
mercialbus for the last leg of the trip 

Sixteen collegians, their ranks swel- 
led by seven high school bandsmen 
who also love to toot away from home, 
were expected to make the initial

Much help is needed of the student 
body of AC.TC in the maintenance of 
the elubroom if we are to keep it a 
place we are proud of. 

The Student Council has purchased 
some new furniture, and arranged for 
the use of a new juke box to give 
more activity for the students. With 
the increasing use of our recreation 
rooms, everyone's cooperation is need-

The following rules have been ap- 
proved by the Student Council: 



If everyone will take it as his or

take the trophy. 

Starting play the second night of 
tourney action, Thursday night, the 
AC five beat Central of McPherson

ponent, and until the sound of the 
final horn, the victory was not assured. 
The final— Ark Cty 53, Tonkawa 
Mavericks 50. 

The third team which fell to the 
onslaught of the Tigers was the

Ravens Take 2 of 3 
To Cop State Title 
From Tired Arks 

In the best 2 out of 3 series, the 
ready and rested Coffeyville Red Rav- 
ens bested a very road-weary and tired 
Tiger squad in the third series game 
played at Coffeyville March 13, 65-53. 
The Kahlermen were dethroned after 
four straight championships. 

In the first game of the series, 
played in Ark City, the Ravens won 
out in a close battle, 56-50. The Rav- 
ens had a very hot night from the 
field, hitting 21 out of 34 shots at- 
tempted for a torrid 62 per cent. The 
Tigers were considerably cooler, hit- 
ting 32 per cent on 16 completions 
out of 49 shots. 

The Ravens jumped out to an early 
lead of 12-2 and held the Bengals to 
just 7 points in the first 10 minutes of 

Del Heidebrecht was the top scorer 
for the Tigers with 22 points. Maynard 
was the only other Tiger hitting in 
double figures scoring 12 points. Cof- 
feyville had a rebounding edge of 34 
to 28. 

In the second game of the play-off, 
held at Coffeyville, the Tigers won out 
70-64. It was another close battle, 
with the game being capable of going 
either way. 

Del Heidebrecht was top scorer for 
the Bengals with 27 points. Maynard 
scored a total of 13 points, all of them 
coming in the second half. Bill Clara- '■£ 
han and Dave Dunbar each had 8 ^ 
points. ^ 

In the third game of the series, and rt 
the Tigers sixth game in seven nights, S 
a very determined Raven squad won ~ 
>3. This gave the state champion- ~ 

ship to Coffeyville. 

In a red hot and contested battle, 
Coffeyville controlled and hit on 
numerous occassions to finally ice the 
game. They led 37-24 at intermission. 

Twenty -two fouls were called 
against the Bengals and the Ravens 
turned these into 29 points. The Ben- 
gals hit 19 points from the charity 

( larahan and Heidebrecht tied for 
top scoring honors with 14 points each. 
Garlett was the Raven high scorer 
with 20. 

Dan Kahler and his boys have lived 
up to their reputation again. In the 
past five seasons of coaching basic et- 
b:i 11 for ACJC, Coach Kahler has 
directed four regional winners, and 
three national placing teams. Con- 
gratulations, Dan!

Junior College 
Choir Planning 
Spring Tour 

The college choir, under the direc- 
tion of Kenneth Judd, have been dis- 
cussing 1 plans for their annual spring- 
tour of the neighboring high schools 
coming up soon. 

Nothing definite has been decided 
about the exact dates of the tour, or 
the towns which will be visited. 

The show itself will consist of two 
different parts. The first part will be 
put on by the entire choir singing in 
robes, to show the real singing ability 
of the entire group. 

The second part will be a variety 
type program. This part will spot- 
light the individual and smaller groups 
of the choir. The first part while be- 
ing the serious part will be offset 
by the humor of the second act. 

The towns frequently visited by the 
choir in the past include Newkirk, 
Winfield, South Haven, Oxford, Udall, 
Cambridge, Burden, Dexter, Atlanta, 
Rose Hill, Sedan, Cedar Vale, and 

Seniors in each of the high schools 
visited will be given the opportunity 
of informing themselves about the 
offerings of the junior college. Dean 
K. R. Galle and frequently another 
faculty member will talk to seniors 
both individually and in groups, and 
seniors will be given opportunities to 
apply for college scholarships.

Tigers Take 
Eighth Spot in 
National Meet 

Eighth place in the nation is the new 
ranking of the Tigers of Ark City. 
The Bengals gained the eighth posi- 
tion, and the accompanying trophy, 
when the Hutchinson Blue Dragons 
knocked the scoring props out from 
under the Tigers in the last few mo- 
ments of the final game in the conso- 
lation bracket, and took fifth spot 
nationally by a score of 55-53. 

In the first game of tourney play, 
Boise, Idaho, stopped the Bengals by 
five points with a final tally of 68-63. 
The number two game saw the Tigers 
defeat the Murray State Aggies of 
Tishomingo, Ok., by a 66-52 margin, 
and the third game pitted Hibbing, 
Minn., against the AC team with the 
result that Hibbing was pushed out 
of tournament play after bowing to 
the Bengals, 80-57. 

In the final game, the Tigers were 
going strong against the Hutchinson 
team, but lost, surprisingly, at the 
free-throw line, by a score of 55-53. 

Players who brought the eighth- 
place trophy include Jack Anderson, 
Dave Dunbar, Bill Clarahan, Bud 
Shoemaker, John Smith, Jim Caller, 
Sonny Maynard, Del Heidebrecht, Don 
Miller, and Acce Atkinson. >

In a roekum-sockum basketball 
game played at the auditorium-gym,

The sophomores built up an early 
lead and kept a pretty safe margin 
throughout the game. The sophs led 
49-36 at halftime. 

Two guards, Charlie Rankin and 
Jack Anderson, led the seor ng, and 
were outstanding in shooting and in 
the fast break. Rankin, playing the 
best ball of his career, led the scoring 
parade with 25 points. Anderson, what 
with fanciest shorts in Tiger history 
was next in line with 19 points. 

Clint Webber, Dan Kahler, and Ben 
Cleveland led the faculty scoring with 
15 points each. 

Dave was the sophomore's 
foach and the team was composed of 
Clarahan, Maynard, Ruft'in, Rankin, 
Shoemaker, Anderson, Hutchinson and 

Players making up the faculty 
squad were Kahler, Bohannan, Web- 
ber, Cleveland, Reid, Valliere, Gregory,

Calls For All

1 Spring Sports 


The cage season has ended for this 
time for the ACJC squad, but before 
sports fans look to tennis, track and 
golf to entertain them, leave us look 
at the past roundball season. 

* * * $ $ 

This season has been an excellent 
season for the Ark City squad. Dan 
Kahler's cagers not only have main- 
tained the AC reputation, but even 
perhaps added to it by bringing home 
a first-place regional trophy and an 
invitation to participate in the nation- 
al tourney — a coveted opportunity 
among junior college cagers. In the 
national tournament the Tigers up- 
held tradition by bringing home the 
bacon in the form of an eighth-place 
trophy. Incidentally, that makes four 
regional firsts, and four national 
placing trophies won in the past five 
seasons. The trophies plus the excel- 
lent regular-season record adds up to 
a rough time for the next-season's 
team to beat. BUT it can be done! 
And remember, fans, it helps to BACK 

Turning now to the tennis courts, 
and prospects cf future winnings — 
Things look blight through the rae- 
cuet strings, with three returning let- 
termen to play their roles. Jim Carter, 
a nationally well-ranked swatter, 
Glenn Smith, and Duane Houdek are 
the letter-winners, and Rod Starkey, 
Jim Fergus, and Bill Clarahan will 
he on deck to help keep the court- 
force strong. 

And on the links, AC has one golfer 
who lettered last year Larryl Hutch- 
ins. David Pearce, Charles Swayden, 
and Fred Rcimer ace also "going out" 
for golf.

stimulating interest and increasing 
their prestige professionally. 

Miss Courtright plans to enroll in 
two courses, "topics in freshman col-

With the approaching end of the 
current academic year, the carpentry 
class is rapidly completing the five- 
room frame house being constructed 
as a class project in the 500 block on 
West Fifth Avenue. 

L. A. Chaplin, instructor, has an- 
nounced that final touches are being 
put on. After completion of these de- 
tails, the lighting and bathroom fix- 
tures will be installed, along with the 
perimeter heating system. There is 
also a air-conditioning unit which may 
be hooked up to the heating system 
for summertime comfort. 

All of the floors are hardwood sur- 
faced and sealed oak shorts, with the 

exception of the bathroom and kitchen 
The bathroom will have inlaid linol-

chen cabinet top. 

There are two bedrooms in the house 
A special feature in one of them is a 
large walk-in closet with sliding doors. 
The livingroom is of medium size, 
with modernistic windows. 

The interior walls are of sheetrock 
with plastering over the joints for 
added strength. Both the walls and 
the interior wood trim will be left

Tiger Tracksters 
Start Season 
ith Some Hope 1 


Arkansas City Junior Collegians 
have grounds for hope in coming 
track meets, in the opinion of Coach 
Clint Webber. 

The team's journey to Pittsburg last 
week was relatively un-fruitful in 
point raising because of the fine shape 
of the Pittsburg team which had been 
in training since last September. How- 
ever, Webber stated he believes that 
with training his squad will be able 
to make a better showing in coming 

Coach Webber has four milers who 
have promise, including Burl Angle- 
meyer, who was the only point-gathor- 

The tentative schedule for the '57 
seas'/i for the Arkansas City Junior 
College track squad, including meets 
already held, is as follows: 

April 9 Pittsburg 

April 11 Coffeyville 

April 17 Tonkawa 

April 24 Tonkawa 

April 25 __ Coffeyville Relays 

May 3 Hutcinson Relays 

May 12_State Meet at Hutch- 

er at Pittsburg's meet with AG's lone 
two points, and who ran the mile in 
4:44, Jim Mooreland, who has made a 
4:26 mile, and Leslie Alexander. 

In the sprinting division, Coach 
Webber oresees excellent possibilities 
in Dave Dunbar as the ACentry in the 
100-yard dash. Dunbar placed sixth 
at Pittsburg, the team's first meet of 
the season. 

The combination of Bush, Shepherd 
and Dunbar wakes a strong high- 
jump squad, while Vein Hottle, who 
won in his league in the Kansas City 
high school Jie attended, carries the 
pole-vault burden. Hottle, who injured 
his shoulder at Pittsburg, has strong 
shoulders developed from recent 
weight-lifting activities. Hottle still 
needs to learn to fall correctly after 
reaching the zenith of the vault, Web- 
ber said. 

Bob VanSchuyver, divided between 
shot-put and javlin throwing, and Har- 
old Mansell are the team's shot-put- 
ters, and Bud Shoemaker is the dis-

did not participate regularly in the 
past regular basketball season, has 
been announced by Coach Dan Kahler. 

It is still to be determined whether 
the games will be played during after- 
noon or evening hours, or whether it 
is to be a mixture of both. 

Also undetermined is whether round- 
robin play or eliminations will be in 
order. Coach Kahler said, however, 
that it is likely that round-robin play 
will be used, and that the winners 
would be awarded prizes "of some

School Picnic 
Maybe Later? 

The all-school picnic, scheduled for 
Friday afternoon, was cancelled by 
Student Council President Earl Clay- 
ton when a check at the deadline, Wed- 
nesday noon, showed that the council 
had failed to meet the required num 
ber of sales. 

Two hundred tickets had been set 
as the minimum number of sales of r 
only 142 tickets had been sold. 

"We may be able to schedule the

Tiger Staff Hopes To 
Distribute Annual 
Before Final Exams 

Gordon Lack, annual staff member, 
was accompanied by A. E. Maag, 
annual sponsor, to Oklahoma City, 
April 27, to read proof on the "Tiger." 

The "Tiger" is expected to arrive 
in Arkansas City May 16 or 17 for 
distribution to subscribers. 

"I am pleased with the annual this 
year, especially the cover," Maag 
said Monday. He expressed some doubt 
that the distribution deadline would 
be met by the printer. Should distribu- 
tion be delayed much later than May 
17, Maag saw "troubles."

Given Rope, These 
Juco Authors Would 
Hang Themselves 

As the school year has steadly pas- 
sed along, almost all of us at on time 
or another have been called upon to 
write a research paper. 

Since this is a project dear to all our 
hearts, we rack our brains to rind an 
appropriate topic to write about and 
then still can't come to any basic con- 

A survey was taken and here are 
some excellent subjects thought up 
by a few bright students of Juco as 
ideal term paper topics: 

Nancy Poore — Why and How to win 
an argument. 

J yce Foltz — 25 ways of getting rid 
of little sisters. 

Theresa Haggard (future teacher)— 
The womanly art of self defense in 
the classroom. 

Robert Shire — The unusual life of 
Maxine Hynd — A good substitute for 

John Cay (future preacher) — The 
glorious heritage of American Bap- 

Phil Buechner — Trout fishing. 
Kenneth Judd — The history and orgin 
of CIGARS, (wonder why?) 
Larry Arnett — The art of controlled 

Parriet Johnson — Bessis Ziegler — 
Our two pests in Chorus. 
Nancy Dowler — Interplanetary Con- 

Paul Wirt-- The art of driving a Mer- 
cedes-Benz in a cross-country race. 
Jim Webb — The maintenance of a 
left-handed screwdriver. 
Fuise Walker — Nudist camps, (well 
now! ! )

tudent-Directors Begin 
ramatic Presentations 

Rogers and Hammerstein, look out! 
You have competion! Arkansas City 
Junior College is getting set to turn 
out play-directors which may "flood 
the market." 

The dramatics class presented its 
first student-directed play in class 
April 25. The directing of at least one 
one-act play in class is part of each 
student's assignment for the semester, 
and Jim Fergus was the first to "get 
in his homework", so to speak. 

Fergus directed a one-act comedy- 
drama, "The Deceivers", in which 
Burchie Baber, Del Humphries and 
Howard Kivett were the characters. 

The play, viewed by an audience of 
three — Duane Houdek, th one drama- 
tic student not cast, Dan Kahler, in- 
structor of the class, and Alan Maag, 
who was there just for fun — , came 
out so well that Kahler said "The 
Deceivers" would be "kept warm" in 
th event of the possibility of taking 

the play on the road, perhaps with 
the chorus. The play was to be pre- 
sented in assembly, but no time has 
been open. 

The next play, "The Morgue", is 
to be co-directed by Burchie Baber 
and Howard Kivett on May 7 at one 
o'clock in room 103. All students who 
do not have classes are invited to 
come in mid watch the presentation. 

The final play, although not as yet 
decided upon, will be presented under 
the co-direction of Duane Houdek and 
Del Humphries. Students are also in- 
vited to attend this play when given. 

Use Real Cash Register 

A $2,000 cash register, furnished by 
the National Cash Register Company, 
is being used by the Distributive 
Education class. The machine will be 
used for two weeks to give the stu- 
dents special training.

Tigerama instead of Dan Le Stour- 
geon, as was reported. 

To Begin May 31, 
Dean Galle Says 

Junior college summer classes will 
start May 31, the Friday after the 
regular session ends, and will run 
until the last of July, Dean K. R.

that have been requested. 

Students interested in the summer 
classes should report their wishes to 
the office immediately, Dean Galle 


Students Bleed 

For Physiology Class 

To Get Samples 

The college physiology class has 
done some extensive experimenting 
with human blood the past two weeks. 
Experiments have been carried out 
in blood counts, blood typing, and 
coagulation and hemoglobin tests. 

Fifty-six persons have been tested 
in order to see if the theory that type 
blood is the most common, would 
hold true, according to J. Kelsey Day, 
instructor. Of the 56 people tested, 
24 were found to have type O, 24 with 
type A, 6 with type B, and only 2 
people were found to have type AB 
blood, which is the rarest of the four 
major types. 

Day said that the purpose of the 
tests was not to teach the students 
how to make the tests but rather that 
they could know how and why such 
tests were given. Besides testing the 
class members, the group recruited 
donors from outside the class to pro- 
vide blood for the experiments. Facul- 
ty members and students were solici- 
ted in all parts of the academic build- 
ing for blood donations. 

Cagers Honor 
Sonny Maynard, 
ill Clarahan 

Bill Clarahan and Sonny Maynard 
were named "Most Inpirational Play- 
ers" at the annual basketball banquet 
April 10. The banquet was sponsored 
by the local Kiwanis Club and was 
held at the American Legion building. 

Gerold Tucker, coach of the Philips 
66 basketball team, was the guest 
speaker at the dinner and gave an in- 
teresting talk to the crowd attending. 

Bill and Sonny were regular starters 
on the Tiger basketball squad the past 
season. As sophomores they played an 
important role in the Tigers' success- 
ful season. Both are two-year letter- 
men and were good prospects as fresh- 
men, Maynard starring throughout 
his initial year and Clarahan showing 
flashes of the brilliance that won him 
renoun in 1957. 

By attaining this honor the two will 
have their names added to the list on 
the placque in the show case which 
thus far has honored John Gaddis, 
1952, Linwood Burns, 1953, J. C. Lou- 
derback, 1954, Tonv Rendulich, 1955, 
and Bill Embry, 1956. 

Members of the basketball squad 
make the annual selection, announced 
traditionally at the basketball banquet. 

To Young Chull Kim, freshman from 
Seoul, Korea, fell the kind of an 
Easter vacation that the rest of us 
just dream about. 

Recently Young Chull received a 
very handy gift of cash from a friend 
of his family, and like many good 
Tigers, had visions of a bright shiny 
new record player, all for himself 

Developments came. The donor of 
the gift, the president of the Korean 
National Assembly, appeared in the 
USA, ill at Walter Reed Hospital in 
Washington D. C. 

Young Chull and Elder Brother 
Bob, now at Kansas University, de- 
cided that the thing to do was to 
visit their friend. 

Saturday the two Kims boarded a 
plane, flew to the nation's capital for 
Easter, visited their friend, and flew 
back to Kansas City Easter evening. 

Delores Burt, sophomore, was absent 
from school May 17 and 18 to attend 
the funeral of her aunt, Mrs. Mary 
Lawson White, junior college grad- 
uate of 1924, at Houston. The class of 
1924 was ACJC's first class. 

Joe Chyung, '56, now a junior in 
engineering at Missouri U, visited 
during the Easter weekend at the 
home of P. M. Johnson.

66 Students Participate in Intramural Basketball 

"Intramural basketball play has 
reached 66 pupils so far. We're proud 
of having- this number out, but we 
would like to reach more. If time per- 
mits, we'll put on more activities in 
softball, basketball, or ping-pong for 
mass participation." 

Dan Kahler, the source of the 
above quotation, is the key figure in 
the new extra-curicula activity. In- 
tramural basketball was initiated into 
the agenda of ACJC this spring and 
has been "catching on" very well. 

In the first round of intramural 
play the games were notably even, 
with three games being won by mar- 
gins not exceeding two points. The 
second round was quite in contrast 
with first round as most games came 
out lopsided, and one girls' game saw 
one team almost "skunked." 

Students participating in intramural 
basketball at the present time include: 
Boys Division, squad "A" — Jerry 
Towell, captain, Wes Jordan, Lyle 
Morris, Gene Pound, Dick Voss, Har- 
old Cox, Paul Bell, Kenny Weber, and 
Clifford Murdock. 

Squad "B" — Vern Hottle, captain, 
Harold Mansell, George Graham, R •■- 
aid Mclntire, Gene Norton, Jim 
Brown, Gary Ham, Leslie Alexander, 
Ralph Hanna, and Ralph Palmer.

tain, Gary Metcalf, George Angle- 
meyer, Robin Thorpe, Marvin Daniel, 
Jerry Mayberry, Verle Goodnight, Jim 
Moreland, Clarence Palmer, and Lee 
Roy McDowell. 

Squad "D" — Chuck Hottle, captain, 
Carl Shaffer, Rod Starkey, Jim Smith, 
Ronald Harris, Bob Van Schuyver, 
Irv Wahlenmaier, Jim Fergus, Dave 
Daulton, and Frank Crawford. 

Squad "E" — Chuck Shepard, cap- 
tain, Gary Miller, Jim Kenny, Lewis 
Cross, Frank Ryman, Jack Smith, 
Don Palmer, Gordan Lack, Bob Olm- 
stad, and Del Humphries. 

Girls division, squad "A" — Shirley 
Reid, captain, Barbara Lemert, Sylvia 
Bays, Mary James, and Norma Si- 
mons. Squad "B" — Kay Eastman, cap- 
tain, Lois Marshall, Helen Glenn, Har- 
riet Johnson, Fanchon La Roche, and 
Nancy Thomas. Squad "C" — Burchie 
Baber, captain, Mavlene C v "'i!?te r "=' v n, 
Patty Colgazier, Helen Shoemaker, 
Martie Crowley, and Virginia Gil- 

Intramural basketball has been so 
popular that its instigators look for- 
ward to starting early next fall and 
have it again in the spring. They also 
plan to enlarge the teams and number 
of sports involved. However, the en- 
largement and starting plans are still 
in the stage and quite indefinite. 

Last Monday evening, in the girls' 
semi-finfl games, team "A" defeated 
team "C" 14-10, and team "A" was 
scheduled to meet team "B" on Tues- 

day night. 

Monday evening play also saw the 
boys team "C" defeat team "D" 34- 
82, and "B" beat "E" 32-30. 

The boys semi-finals were sche- 
duled for Tuesday night with "C" 
pitted against "E", and the winners 
slated to meet "B" for the champion- 
ship sometime next week.

NJCAA Regional Cage 
Meet Remains at Dodge City 

Plans to move the junior college 
regional basketball tournament back 
to Arkansas City next year have 
fallen through, as Dodge City was 
once again awarded the contests at 
the regional meeting at Hutchinson 
last Friday. 

However, the NJCAA is planning 
on putting Kansas back in one region 
to simplify matters. As the duo-re- 
gional set-up stands, it is possible 
for Kansas to have four teams entered 
in the national tilts which, it is felt, 
is a bad situation. 

The regional tourney next season is 
to be held March 5, 6, 7, and 8.

Proposed School Picnic 
Cancelled by Council 

Plans for the school picnic sched- 
uled for May 3, which was cancelled, 
and tentatively planned for May 17, 
were rubbed out at the Student Coun- 
cil Meeting Wednesday. Due to the 
lack of interest during the first sale, 
council members felt it would be use- 
less to try again to meet the require- 
ment of 200 tickets, as only 142 were 
sold earlier. 

Students were able to redeem their 
tickets for the orginal purchase price 
of 50 cents, Monday through Wednes- 
day of this week.

meyer made an excellent showing by 
running in first position all the way 
until the final stretch when Toller, 
of Hutchinson, pulled ahead to win 
by a approximately a yard.

though cindered, was soggy and slip- 
pery from recent rains, Anglemeyer 
still managed to run the mile in 4 
minutes and 40 seconds. The record 
for junior colleges is 4:26.

ed that he would try to arrange Angle- 
meyer's entrance into the national

Clark Heads SNEA, 
Formerly FTA; New 
Members Welcome 

Don Clark, sophmore education stu- 
dent, has been elected president of 
the C. E. St. John Chapter of the 
Student National Education Associa- 
tion for the 1957-58 academic year. The 
SNEA was formerly known as the 
Future Teachers of America, but col- 
lege chapters of the association 
changed the name 'to differentiate 
their group from the high school FTA 
this year. 

Other officers are Jack Selan, Trea- 
surer; Joyce Foltz, secretary; Judy 
Coulter, historian; and Mrs. Betty 
White, student council representative. 
All are sophomores. No vice president 
has yet been named, since this office 
must be held by a freshman, and no 
freshman members have yet been ini- 

A welcome to freshmen men and wo- 
men interested in becoming teachers 
was extended by Clark and Miss Mary 
Margaret Williams, faculty sponsor. 
They are anxious to talk to pros- 
pective members. An active chapter 
program has been planned for the 
current year. 

Reaches 331 
As of Oct. 4 

Total enrollment for the Arkansas 
City Junior College to October 4 was 
331, Dean K. R. Galle has announced. 
This represents a decrease of 5 from 
last years enrollment of 336. Although 
a few new students are still expected 
to enroll, this number should be very 
near the final count. 

Four foreign students are enrolled 
this year. Rex Ling and Young Chull 
Kim are returning students While 
Dong Gill Lee, from Seoul, Korea, and 
Fatollah Pejham, from Iran, are new 
students. One other foreign student 
is still expected to enroll. Lee was a 
high school classmate of Kim. 

As usual, many towns are repre- 
sented with most of the out-of-state 
students coming from Oklahoma. Of 
course neighboring towns are well 
represented, but students have en- 
rolled from as far away as Philadel- 

Breaking down the total would 
show the men out numbering the wo- 
men by a little over two to one. There 
are 107 women enrolled and 224 men. 
There are 206 in the freshman class, 
101 sophomores and 24 special stu- 
dents. Since last year the number of 
women students has increased while 
the number of men has remained 
about the same.

College Clubrooms 
Are Refurnished 
During Summer 

Students returning to junior college 
this year found that during the sum- 
mer extensive changes had been made 
in the student lounge. More than 
$1,800 has been spent on alterations 
to the clubrooms. The money has 
gone mainly for the installation of 
a new ceiling and a new wall. 

The wall was built to make a lounge 
which would be separate from the 
recreational section of the clubrooms. 
The ceiling besides being be-iutiful 
also helps to hold down noise. Future 
plans call for the repainting of all the 
walls and purchase of more furniture. 

The student council had charge of 
all the work and bids were submitted 
for the construction. Low bidder on 
the work was Jim Hinson, '49, who 
completed the job except for the elec- 
trical work, which was done by Wea- 
ver Electric. 

A breakdown of the money spent 
would show that $1,568 was spent for 
the ceiling and wall, with th^ elec- 
trical work coming to $246. Of the 
$ 1,814 spent, $1,000 was received 
from I be Boird of Education and the 
remainder came from money earned 
at the concession stands and from 
student fees.

Positions As Starters 

With 16 lettermen returning, Head 
Coach Clint Webber and his new as- 
sistant, J. C. Loudeiback are direct- 
ing a football squad to what may 
yet prove to be one of the most success- 
ful seasons in many years at ACJC. 
More than 50 men were in uniform 
early in the season, for the largest 
turnout in Tiger history. 

Although many gaps were created 
by graduation, Coaches Webber and 
Louderback are confident that the re- 
turning lettermen, combined with the 
fine crop of new material on hand 
will be more than sufficient to carry 
the load. Competition is still keen 
for positions as mid-season approach- 

Lettermen returning included seven 
backs, Kenny Weber, Newkirk; Chuck 
Shepard, Clay Center; Cecil Reynolds, 
Winfield; Harold Cox, Stroud, Okla., 
Don Baker, Ark City. Linemen return- 
ing were Paul Bell, Bixby, Okla.; Ev-

Norsemen Hand 
Bengals First Loss 

The Golden Norsemen of Miami 
Junior College took too many Ark 
City errors to hand the Tigers their 
first loss of the season, 19-0 at Miami, 
Sept. 27. 

The Norsemen wasted no time in 
scoring, as Jack Jones hit end Carl 
Bj'ker with a pass good for 10 yards 
snd a touchdown with only 3:10 gone 
in the first quarter. The play was set 
up when Miami recovered a fumble 
on the Tiger 10. 

Miami's second touchdown came 
after a series of punts, fumbles and a 
pass interception by Ken Daniels of 
the Tigers, and gave the Norsemen 
a 13-0 halftime advantage. 

Again offensive mistakes plagued 
the Tigers as the second half got 
under way, keeping them deep in their 
own territory. Outstanding defensive 
play by the forward wall, led by 
I yle Morris, Jack Neff, Buel Duncan, 
Paid Bell, and Raymond Gray kept 
the Miami offensive bottled and 
neither team could manage a sub- 
stantial drive during the third period. 

Half way through the final period, 
Mi.- mi intercepted an AC pass on the 
Tiger 37. Cox made a first down on 
the Bengal 26 from where Jack Jones 
went over for the TD to put the game 
out of reach for the Tigers. The 
Tigers definitely had trouble moving 
the ball as the Miami line gave up a 
net of 33 yards rushing and 30 yards 
through the air.

Tigers Gain Most, But 
Maverick PAT 
Wins by 14-13 Count 

In a very tense and exciting football 
game, the A. C. Tigers were handed 
their second straight defeat of the 
season, Oct. 3, 14 to 13 by the fired-up 
Mavericks of Northern Oklahoma 
Junior College of Tonkawa. For the 
first time this season it was the 
Tiger defense which faltered as the 
Mavericks came from behind, after 
the Tigers had scored the go-ahead 
touchdown in the fourth quarter, to 
win in the closing minutes of the 

It was Tonkawa who scored first, 
recovering a fumble on the first play 
of the game, on the Tiger 20. After 
five plays put the ball on the 4, Sim- 
son scored with 1 :48 gone in the game. 
Smith converted. 

The Bengal's first counter came late 
in the first quarter after the Tigers 
held and forced Tonkawa to punt, 
Weber hit Ken Daniels with a pass 
o-ood for 21 to the Maveick 29. Weber 
got 8 to the Tonkawa 21. Harold 
Talley then took a Weber pitch-out 
and went the remaining 21 yards for 
the TD. The conversion was blocked. 

The Tigers got their last TD in the 
fourth quarter. AC forced Tonkawa to 
punt and Dave Dunbar returned the 
kick 35 yards to the AC 40. Dunbar 
got three to the 43. Then Weber hit 
Daniels on the Maverick 40-yard line 
Daniels covered the remaining 40 yard 
untouched and AC led, 13-7. 

The Mavericks took the ensuing 
kickoff and, with consistent gains, 
Loth on the ground and in the air, 
moved off from their own 30 to theAO 
16 where Shoemaker went over to tie 
the game. Smith's kick was again good 
and Tonkawa went ahead to stay. 

Playing his first game as a starter, 
Harold Talley repeatedly electrified 
the crowd with a beautiful exhibition 
of open field running. Combined with 
Dave Dunbar, the pair accounted for 
most of the Tigers rushing yardage. 
Daniels thrilled the crowd by his pass 
s Hatching. 

To be Heard October 15 
First Call for Cagers 

First call for Tiger basketball play- 
ers will be issued October 15, Coach 
Dan Kahler announced today. 

Kahler expects about 30 candidates 
to report for the first workouts, which 
will be largely conditioning exercises.

Ancient Feud 
With Grizzlies 
Resumes Friday 

The Ark City Tigers will be out to 
avenge the 29-19 loss of last year as 
they journey to El Dorado, Friday 
night to play the Grizzlies in a Jay- 
hawk Juco Conference tilt. The Griz- 
zlies are one of the most respected 
foes on the Tiger schedule having run 
up the second highest score of any 
team on the Bengals, 71-0 in 1951. The 
Grizzlies have also taken three out of 
the last five contests from the Tigers. 
The Arks will also be out to keep 
their conference record unblemished 
as they stand undefeated in league 
play, with a two wins and no loss re- 

The Arks will then be at home to 
the Red Ravens of Colfeyville the 
following Saturday night. The Ravens, 
defending national champions, always 
prove to be tough competition for the 
Tigers, but have found the going to be 
a little rough this season and now 
stand at two wins and one loss in con- 
ference play. 

October 26 will find the Tigers at 
Dodge City, where they will meet the 
current leaders of the league. 

November 1 will again find the 
Tigers on the road, this time in a tilt 
against the Pratt Beavers. The fans 
who made the long journey to Pratt 
last year will remember the hard- 
fought game and the caliber of play 
turned in by the Beavers. The Beavers 
have shown surpising strength in the 
early part of this season holding the 
powerful Red Ravens of Coffeyville to 
a one touchdown 6-0 victory by the 
Ravens, and beating Garden City. 

Arks Bust Broncs 
!n Driving Rain, 14-0 

An alert and unyielding defense 
proved to be all that was necessary as 
the Tigers romped to a 14-0 football 
victory against the Garden City Bronc- 
busters on rain-soaked Curry Field 
September 20. More than an inch of 
rain fell during the first half. 

With eight minutes gone in the 
first perod, Ark City's tackle Jack 
Neff scooped up a Bronc fumble on 
the Garden 6-yard line an went over 
for the first touchdown. Harol Cox 
Tigers led, 7-0. 
plunged for the exta point and the 

Early in the third period, when the 
rain had let up, the Tigers, after hold- 
ing the Broncs, took over in downs and 

Parsons Cardinals 
Are 31-6 Victims 
In Season Opener 

A first half defensive stalemate was 
quickly turned into an offensive run- 
away in the second half as the Tigers 
scored almost at will in routing the 
Parsons Cardinals, 31-6, in the sea- 
sons' opener for both teams. 

On the opening kickoff of the se- 
cond half, Parsons fumbled on their 
own 9. With Ken Weber quarter- 
backing, Dave Dunbar went over 
standing up on the first play from 
scrimmage. Frank Swopes' conver- 
sion was no good and the Tigers led, 
6-0. Parsons ran two plays following 
the kick-off and again fumbled on 
their 15. Dunbar got six to the 9 and 
a five-yard penalty against Parsons 
moved it to the 4, where Ken Weber, 
again quarterbacking, handed off to 
Willie Boyd, who plunged for the TD. 
Swopes' conversion was blocked and 
Ark City led 12-0 with 2 minutes 10 
seconds gone in the half. In the third 
quarter, after Parsons had punted to 
the 50, the Tigers moved 26 yards in 
four plays, and then Dunbar took a 
delayed handoff from Weber to go 
the remaining 24 yards for the TD. 
Shepard's conversion was good and 
the Tigers led, 19-0. 

Shortly afterwards, Parsons got 
their only touchdown on a pass play 
good for 25 yards. 

Revenge came quickly as the Tigers 
moved the ball 66 yards after the 
kickoff to the Parsons' 23, where Vern 
Hottle took Mike Engel's handoff to 
go over for the Tiger's fourth TD. 
Chuck Swayden's tremendous catch 
of Mike Engel's pass, good for 27 
yards, was the long gainer in the 

The Tigers got their last touchdown 
in the waning minutes of the game 
after the Cardinals fumbled with Dick 
Voss recovering on the Parsons 40. 
Cecil Reynolds, Cecil Johns, and Don 
Baker were constant gainers on the 
drive, with Baker going over from 
the one for the TD. The conversion 
attempt by Shepard was again no 

marched 44 yards for theor second, 
touchdown, with Chuck Shepad going 
over on a quarterback keeper. Shepard 
plunged for the extra point. 

That was the ball game as the two 
teams battled the remainder of the 
game without either team being able 
to move the ball due to the condition 
of the field. Vey fine defensive play 
was demonstrated by both squads. 

It was the second conference vic- 
tory for the Bengals and placed atop 
the heap in loop standings.

Float for Arkalalah Parade 
Built by Tiger Action Club 

A gayly colored float, depicting the

Sydney Smith 
Is Crowne 

Alalah XXVI 

Sydney Smith, dark-eyed junior col- 
lege coed, was crowned Nov. 1 as 
Queen Alalah XXVI, to reign over 
the twenty-sixth renewal of the Ar- 
kansas City Arkalalah celebration. 

Earl Clayton, juco student presi- 
dent, placed the crown on the head of 
her majesty, and the royal scepter 
was presented the monarch of Ark- 
alalah by Mss Kay Winegarner, a 
member of the class of 1957 and the 
retiring queen. Miss Winegarner, now 
a junior at the University of Kansas, 
was crowned last year as Queen 
Alalah XXV. 

Four other rigidly selected candi- 
dates for the title served as princes- 
ses in the Queen's Court at the coro- 
nation ceremonies. They were Nancy 
Hatfield, Nancy Thomas, Martha 
Lallman, and Pat Colglazier. The 
relative standing in the annual bal- 
loting of the candidates other than 
the Queen v/as not revealed. 

The Arkalalah celebration, Ark- 
ansas City's annual Halloween Fes- 
tival, is sponsored by the Chamber of 
Commerce, and Dr. W. G. Weston 
was chairman of the 1957 Arkalalah 
committee. The selection and corona- 
tion of the queen to rule over - the 
festival is delegated to the city 
schools, under direction of the Cham- 
ber of Commerce Committee. The 
process of election of the queen in- 
volves, the selection of ten: top" can- 
didates by a rating process by- the 
junior college faculty and the' voting 
: on prepared ballots by student officers 
and citizens of the community chosen 
at random. It is believed that this 
random method of voting gives- as 
fair a spread as possible and brings in 
a representative sample. 

Only women who are regularly en- 
rolled sophomores carrying a schedule 
of studies, and who are unmarried 
may be chosen as candidates for Queen 

An estimated 28,000 persons watch- 
ed the giant Arkalalah parade Sat- 
urday afternoon, ate at concession 
stands on the streets, visited a car- 
nival, and danced at six dances ar- 
ranged throughout the city. The Queen 
led the grand march at the Queen 's 
Kail Friday night after the coronation, 
dominated the parade with the float 
bearing her court, and was introduced 
Saturday night at a program featur- 
ing radio and television stars. . . 

Twenty-nine visiting queens, select- 
ed by surrounding communities, were 
quests of the city and were intro- 
duced at the coronation. Five foreign 
p-tudents attending Bethel and South- 

western colleges were also guests and 
were entertained at a brunch Satur- 
day in the college assembly room.

to get the facts on your

wants better schools for 
his children, too.

Beavers Knock 
Arks from 

The Beavers of Pratt Junior Col- 
lege came from behind in the final 
quarter Nov.l to hand the Tigers a 
26-14 loss and virtually eliminate the 
Arks from the conference race. It 
was the second conference loss for 
the Tigers and their fourth for the 
season. They have four victories, all 
in conference play. 

Neither team's oflense started to 
move until the second quarter got 
underway, when the Tigers put to- 
gether their first scoring drive climax, 
ed when Harol Cox scored on a pitch- 
out from the two. Ken Weber con- 
verted and the Tigers led, 7-0. 

The Beavers got the tying touch- 
down with only 26 seconds left in the 
first half when Eddie Sanders passed 
to Jerry Helm for the TD. 

The Tigers got a short-lived lead 
late in the third period with Dunbar 
scoring from the one after a 25-yard 
drive started when Chuck Shepard re- 
covered a fumble. 

Pratt then marched 88 yards after 
the kickoff to hit paydirt, with Moer- 
ing scoring from 19 yards out. Rochelle 
blocked the conversion attempt and 
the Beavers were down, 13-14. 

The Tigers, unable to move the ball. 
punted after the first series after the 
kickoff and the Beavers promptly 
turned it into another scoring drive 
to go ahead, 20-14. 

The Beavers recovered a fumble on 
the following kick-off on the Tiger 18 
and five plays later scored to put the 
game away, 26-14. 


ndy Pirates 
Write Finis to 
Ark Title Bid 

The Independence Pirates gave Ark 
City their third consecutive conference 
loss Nov. 6, and crushed all hopes for 
the Tigers to gain any part of the 
leairue crown. The loss also threw the 
battle for the runner-up spot into a 
< i't'ial three-way split between the 
Pirates, Ark City, and Coffeyville. 

Ind' nendence opened the scoring in 
the third period after recovering a 
Tiger fumble on the Ark City 30.

down come early in the final period 
after Dave Dunbar's attempted punt 

Lights Out — Dodge Wins 

Deans of the Kansas Jayhawk Juco 
Conference have handed the Tigers 
their first league loss of the season 
by voting 7-0 to consider the incom- 
plete game between Ark City and 
Dodge City complete and award the 
victory to the Conqs. The deans met 
at Hutchinson, October 29. 

Because of ligfht failure at the 
Dodge City field, the game was called 
with 4 minutes, 21 seconds remaining 
in the third quarter. Coach Clint Web- 
ber refused to move his team to an 
alternate field and the game was left 
unfinished and put in the hands of 
the league board for judgment. Dodge 
was leading at the time 14 to 6. 


Tiger Rally Nips 
Coffeyvi lie's 
Red Ravens, 12-7 

In a brilliant "come-from-behind" 
effort, the Tigers of ACJC downed 
the Coffeyville Red Ravens, to keep 
their league record clean. 

This was entirely a team victory 
with both units coming through when 
needed most. The offensive unit got 
the two touchdowns when the chips 
were down and the defensive unit 
held the poweful Ravens when, late in 
the closing quarter, they appeared to 
be on their way to scoring what would 
have been the winning touchdown. 

After a defense-dominated first 
quarter, the Tigers found themselves 
trailing in the opening minutes of 
the second period. The Ravens recover- 
ed a Tiger fumble on the AC 15 and 
three plays later had their touchdown, 
with Kyle scoring from the 3. The ex- 
tra point was good and the Ravens 
led, 7-0. 

With six minutes gone in the four- 
th guarter, the Tigers put on their 
first real scoring bid, starting on their 
own 20 and climaxing the drive by 
Ken Weber scoring from the 1. Man- 
sell's fc ick was no good and the Tigers 
trailed, 6-7. 

Following the kickoff, the Tigers re- 
covered a Raven fumble, after three 
plays had been run by the Ravens, on 
the Coff'eyville 25. With only two min- 
utes remaining in the contest, Ken 

was blocked and the Pirates took over 
on the Tiger 10. Four plays later they 
had their touchdown and were ahead 
to stay, 12-0. 

Ark Citv's only touchdown en me 
late in the final period after Ken 
Daniels had intercepted a Pirate pass 
and returned it to the Independence 
30. In two carries, Harold Talley 
moved the ball to the two. Ken Weber 
went to the one and Talley scored. 

Bengals Clobber 
Grizzlies 40-0 in 
Offensive Display 

Showing their most well-balanced 
attack of the season, the Tigers 
marched to their third consecutive 
Jayhawk Juco League victory, over 
the El Dorado Grizzlies, 40-0. It was 
a magnificient display of offensive 
ability, the Arks compiling a net 
total of 524 yards while the rock-wall 
defense limited the Bruins to 103 

The Bengals wasted no time in 
showing the 2500 El Dorado fans 
what was in store as they marched 35 
yards to score. Ark City received the 
opening kick-off on their own 15 and 
in six plays had put the ball on the 
ED 37. There Dave Dunbar took a Ken 
Weber hand-off and went all the way 
for the first of six touchdowns for the 
Tigers. Harold Mansell converted, and 
the Tigers led, 7-0. 

The Tigers got their next touchdown 
when El Dorado fumbeled a beautiful- 
ly executed quick kick on their own 
5-yard line, with George Graham mak- 
ing the recovery. Talley moved the ball 
to the 1, and from there Weber went 
over on the keeper play. Mansell again 

Later in the second quarter, after 
the defense had again come through 
the Bengals wound up with the ball on 
their own 29 after taking over on 
downs. On the second play, Ken Dan- 
iels hit Dunbar with a pass good for 
71 yards and the Tigers' third touch- 

As the second half opened, AC recov- 
ered a Bear fumble on the El Dorado 
34 and after three plays, Don Baker 
covered the last 19 yards on a quick 
opener. Mansell's kick was again good 
and the Tigers led 27-0. 

Early in the fourth guarter, the de- 
fense again came through when 
Daniels intercepted a Grizzly pass 
on the AC 37. With Baker and Cecil 
Reynolds doing most of the work the 
Tigers moved to a first and goal sit- 
uation on the Bruin 1-yard line. Mike 
Engle scored on a keeper pi ,y and 
the Tigers led, 33-0 after Mansell's 
kick was blocked. 

Late in the quarter, Chuck Shepard 
intercepted a Bear pass on the A r *f>. 
Weber hit Mansell with a pass good 
to the 47 of Fl Dorado. On the next 
play, Harold Tally went all the way 
to wrap up the touchdown barrage. 

Weber again plunged for the score 
after Harold Talley and a Hottle to 
Weber pass had moved the 1)j>H to the 
2-yard marker. Mansell's kick was 
hlocked but the Timers were able to 
preserve their 12-7 lead.

Biology Department Gets 
Two New Microscopes 

A welcome surprise came to the 
biology department last week when 
two new microscopes were placed in 
the laboratory. These are the first 
new microscopes in a great many 
years and are needed quite badly be- 
cause the students have to work to- 
gether on looking through the miero- 
scepes. This loses a lot of time.

Student Council 



rchases uivans, 
Soft Drink Vender 

Four new divans have been pur- 
chased by the Student Council for the 
recreation room. They will provide 
comfort for the students when they 
get weary of lessons and want to sit 
down and rest for a while. Two large, 
divans cost $130 and two smaller di- 
vans valued at $150 are on order. The 
large divans are red and turquiose. 
These purchases were made by a com- 
mittee consisting of Sidney Smith and 
Everett Rochelle. 

Another purchase made recently by 
the Student Council was the new Dr. 
Pepper vending machine which had 
been rented previously. The pop ma- 
chine cost $200 and will probably pay 
for itself in about a year. The two 
soft-drink venders are expected to pro- 
vide enough income to pay for club- 
room equipment and steward service.

Lions Club Host 

At Annual 

Banquet for Gridmen 

'Cliff Spe'egle, head' coach" of the 
Oklahoma State College, was the 
speaker for the annual Lions Club 
football banquet held- at the VFW on 
Dec. 10. The -speaker is usually a 
coach from either Kansas or Okla- 
homa. - - 

This banquet has been held annually 
for- the last 29 -years except for a 
ecu-pie years during war time. It is 
sponsored by the Lions for the foot- 
ball players from Junior College, 
Senior High School and Chilocco. 

Awards were given to the most out- 
standing player and the most valuable 
player. A turkey dinner was served to 
the players and guests. 

Tickets for the banquet were sold 
by the Lion Club members to the gen- 
eral public. Each ticket pays the way 
of the purchaser and of one of the 
football players. 

Rev. Robert Stevenson 
Is Thanksgiving; Spenker 

The arrival of Sputnick was turned 
into a theme for Thanksgiving by 
the Rev. Robert Stevenson, minister 
of the First Presbyterian church, in 
his sermoriette to junior college stu- 
dents in the annual Thanksgiving pro- 
gram, November 25. 

The scripture was read by Ann 
Harman, and J. Kelsey Day, instruc- 
tor in biological science, led the prayer 
service. Max Gragert sang "How Great 
Thou- Ait." A special nUmber, "For 
the Beauty of the Earth", arid a choral 
arren was presented by the college 
- h '•? . '■ •' 

College athletic coaches look for- 
ward to using the new school bus, 
with much anticipation. It was deliver- 
ed to the Board of Education last 

Coach Clint Webber was quoted as 
saying, "It is really nice and will be 
handy, especially for football season. 
The league limits 33 boys suiting up 
for the games but with the larger 
bus most everyone will be able to go 
even if they don't get to play." 

Dan Kahler's basketball team, will 
be the first Tiger team to use the 
streamlined International bus when 
they travel to Iola, Saturday. They are 
leaving at 2:30 p.m. that afternoon. 
The high school used it for the first 
time last Friday when they played 
Wichita East. 

It is a 41-passenger bus with power 
steering, air brakes, and reclining 
seats. There are storage compart- 
ments on either side and a large rack 
en top of the bus at the rear. 

One nice feature about the bus that 
Mr. Kahler mentioned, is that each 
player can pack his own bag instead 
of doubling up as has been done in 
the past. 

In case some girls get the idea 
that they would like to ride home 
from a game with a bus load of boys, 
they had better forget it. There's a 
regulation -that- only those associated 
with the teeam may ride on the bus. 
Tough luck, huh? 

Band, Early Era Cheerleaders 
Liven up First 
Basketball Pep Assembly 

A parade of students representing 
cheerleaders through different eras 
highlighted the first pep assembly of 
the basketball season Friday, Dec- 
ember 6. Those participating in the 
program were Everett Rochelle as 
the cave man, Del Heidebrecht and 
Don Miller as King Arthur's knights, 
Kindra Shivley portrayed the Gibson 
girl, Sherry . Lewis was the flapper 
"femihe r fa-tale," and A. J. Mori is as 
the modern hep cat. The 1957-58 bas- 
ketball squad was introduced by coach 
Dan Kahler. 

The largest crowd of the year at- 
tended the pep assembly with nearly 
eveiy seat "filled. ' ; '' 

Students were led into the junior- 
college auditorium by' the pep band. 
This was the second time this year 
the pep band appeared in a pep as- 
sembly. Lack of players iri the band 
prevented it from playing at the pre- 
vious assemblies. '. ' 

The program was planned by Kindra 

U. S. Far Ahead of 
Russia, Commentator 
Telis Student Body 

"When anyone says that we are be- 
hind Russia in science, he is naive," 
Harrison Wood, ABC news com- 
mentator told junior college students 
in assembly December 5. "Whatever 
Russia has, the West gave it. Sputnik 
and Muttnik were clever propaganda 
tricks of a distressed and hysterical 
dictator trying to save his skin. His 
government will fall within the next 

The Chinese Red government, Wood 
said, will make a deal with the 
government of the Republic of China, 
and Chiang will return to the main- 
land soon, because Chaing has a mod- 
ern army and Mao is in trouble and 
cannot get aid from the USSR. Some 
face-saving scheme for Mao may be 
attempted, but Chiang will head a 
government on the mainland either 
by conquest or infiltration. 

Russia will not start a war against 
the United States, Wood averred, be- 
cause Russians understand the United 
States, and know they cannot win. 

The purpose of his lecture was to 
reveal the unprinted facts behind in- 
ternational news headlines, but the 
anecdotes and experiences Mr. Wood 
has had with world leaders, of both 
free and Communist countries, filled 
his program with interest and infor- 

Mr.Woods voice is considered one of 
the best on radio, and he was recently 
rated by a lecture agent as one of the 
five greatest speakers on the Amer- 
ican platform today. 

Three lyceum numbers remain on 
the year's schedule for college stu- 
dents. They include these dates: 
Feb. 5: Joe "Mr. Broadway" Calla- 
way, humorous entainer, with ra- 
dio, TV, screen, and stage exper- 
Mar. 26: Robert M. Zimmerman, 
Canadian Olympic swimmer and

Provides Trophy for 
Best Cager-Student 

Dave Dabrow,. father of Tiger Bas-

donated to the Junior College a trophy 
to be awarded, at the end of the spring 
semester, to the Bengal basketball 
player who achieves the highest scho- 
last : c rating for the school year. 

The award will stand, Coach Dan 
Kahler believes, not only as an incen-

proof that the majority of the athletes 
enrolled in college are. here for the 
purpose of acquiring an education and 
not merely because of the athletic 

To be eligible for the award, the

Arks to Pirate 
Stronghold for 
First Road Test 

Five individual tests and a tourna- 
ment at Big Spring, Tex., face the 
Tiger basketballers in the next month, 
as they prepare for the conference 
opener here January 10, against the 
Pratt Beavers. 

First road trip of the season, on 
Saturday, will send the Arks to Iola, 
to meet the Red Devils, who last year 
fell before the Kahlermen 84-67 and 
65-53. Then St. Johns sends her bat- 
tling Eagles to invade the Tiger lair 
next Tuesday night. The Johnnies will 
also be after revenge for a string of 
straight defeats dating back to 1952. 

Old grad Bob Sneller will lead his 
Independence Pirates in defense of the 
home court against the invading 
Tigers December 19, in the final pi-e- 
Christmas outing. Ark alumni will 
test the Bengals in a holiday Quarter- 
back Club game, December 27. Then 
the Tigers will be off for Texas for 
the Big Spring tourney, January 2 to 
4. They will return to defend against 
the Coffeyville Ravens, who wrecked 
the Tiger go-cart in last year's siz- 
zling state championship play-offs.

Tiger Victim; 

B's Get No. 29 

In a battle that was touch and go 
for three quarters of the alloted time, 
the Tigers finally pulled away from an 
equally hard-running crew of Parsons 
Cardinals Saturday night, to win 59- 
47. At the same time the Bengal B's 
also chalked up their second win of the 
season and extended their consecutive 
victory string to 29, topping the Wel- 
lington All-Stars 60 to 45. 

Ark who entered the varsity game 
included Dunbar, who scored 14 
points; Miller, 6; Hamm, 4; Smith, 
3; Heidebrecht, 24; Lewis, 2; J. 
Graves, 3; Perry, 3; and Grubb, S. 
Graves, J. Dabrow, and Reid. Smith 
was cited by Coach Dan Kahler for 
his outstanding defensive play. Eng- 
land and Whetzel led the Card attack 

Bengals in. the . Wellington melee

With 16 sophomores playing their 
final game, the Ark City Tigers closed 
their 1957 grid season with a victory 
over the Hutchinson Blue Dragons to 
win second place in the Jayhawk Juco 
Conference and an even .500 standing 
for the season. 

The Tigers compiled a record of 
five wins and the same number of loss- 
es, beating Parsons, Garden City, El 
Dorado, Coffeyville and Hutchinson. 
They dropped games with Miami of 
Oklahoma, Tonkawa, Pratt, Dodge

Second Ca 9 e Opener 
From Bethany 

The junior college successfully un- 
veiled its 19-57-58 edition of Tiger 
roundballers by taking a 20-point vic- 
tory over the touring Bethany Luther- 
an College of Mankato, Minn., Nov. 
30, at home before a near-capacity 
crowd. The score was 73 to 53. 

Coach Dan Kahler's Tigers, al- 
though never in serious trouble 
throughout the game, enjoyed their 
biggest margin of 20 points at the 
end of the game. The Tigers, after 
Bethany had made the score read 
57-53, put on the pressure and pushed 
16 points through the hoop in the 
last four and one-half minutes for the 
comfortable winning margin. 

The largest early lead held by the 
Tigers, Who were never behind, was 
29-22, but the Vikings cut it to four 
points at the half, 31-27. 

The Vikings got within three points 
twice late in the second half, 52-40 
and 54-51, before the Tigers turned on 
the power both offensively and de- 
fensively to win going away.

Hutch Dragons in 


The Ark City Tigers, after a three- 
week famine whicn saw them drop 
three conference games in succession, 
bounded back into the winning column 
by taking a 27-14 conference decision 
over the Hutchinson Blue Dragons at 
Curry Field, Nov. 15. 

The Tigers scored first in the game, 
recovering a Dragon fumble after 
Hutch had run only two plays from 
scrimmage after the opening kick-off, 
Dunbar passed to Mansell in the end 
zone for the TD. Weber's kick was 
good and the Tigers led, 7-0 with only 
two minutes gone in the period. 

Again the Tigers kicked-off and 
again recovered a third play fumble 
on the Hutch 14. Two plays moved the 
ball to the 11 and Dunbar scored 
standing up. Weber again converted 
and Ark City led, 14-0. 

Early in the second period, Jerry 
Jones intercepted a Hutch pass on the 
Dragon 41 and two penalties had put 
the ball on the four, Cox slammed 
through for the TD and Ark City led, 
20-0 after the conversion attempt was 

After the ball had changed hands 
twice, the Tigers got their next scor- 
ing opportunity, putting the ball in 
play on their own 25. After two rush- 
ing plays, Weber hit Ken Daniels with 
a pass on the 46 and Daniels went all 
the way to the eight before being 
knocked out of bounds. Talley covered 
the remaining distance, and Weber 
?gain converted to give the Tigers a 
27-7 lead.

Thirteen, Lose One 
'"arly Play 


At the half-way point of the con- 
ference season the Bengal cagers 
basted the only unblemished record 
of the Western Division with five 
wins against no defeats. 

Four non-conference foes have felt 
the bite of Tiger Cagers in that por- 
tion of the hardwood season, not 
covered in the December issue of 
Tiger Tales. One foe, St. John's fell 
twice, and one, the Coffeyville Red 
Ravens, has pecked the Tiger's tail. 

The Tigers opened defense of their 
Western Division tille by defeating 
Pratt on the home court by a score of 
74 to 53. 

Conqs, Broncs Stu' born 

Using 1 a tantalizing defense, the 
Arks stymied the Conqs from Dodge 
i 'tv snrt'wo'n their second conference 
victory by a score of 68 to 64. The 
p-me was a fast and furious one with 
Dodge fi f v leading the locals by a : 
score of 37 to 36 at the end of the first 
half. The Tigers took an early lead in 
the second half on Miller's fielder, but 
Dodge City got it back and made the 
score 41 to 38. The Bengals main- 
tained a four point lead the rest of 
th" wpv through the game. 

Playing a stubborn Garden City 
team the Tigers managed to keen 
their loop record clean with a 61 to 57 
decision January 18. The teams played 
on even terms during the first half 
with the Tigers leaing 29 to 26 at 
half time. Garden City managed to tie 
the e"ame at 49 all in the second half, 
but the Tigers went into their set-up 
offense which netted a quick bucket 
by Miller to give them a 57 to 51 lead.

Del Heidebrecht, came through with 
a record-breaking performance as he 
led the Tigers to a 73 to 70 victory 
over a determined Hutchinson Blue 
Dragon team. The win was the fourth 
straight in conference play. The score 
was tied ten times and the lead 
changed hands four times. The score 
was tied 27 all at the half. Hutchinson 
took a 30 to 27 lead as the second half 
ooened but the Bengals came back to 
tie it up a 30-all. Heidebrecht hit a 
fielder to give the Tigers a 38 to 36 
l°ad and the Arks were never behind 
although tied at 46 all and 66 all. 

Heidebrecht was high for the game 
with 49 points as h^ set a new hieh 
srormg record for a Tieer nlayer. The 
old scoring high was 42 points set by 
R*v Potter against El Dorado in 1953.

Victim to Bengals at Big Spring

championship in the Howard County 
Tournament at Big Spring, Tex. Jan.

less than 29 points per game, led the 
Bengals to victories oyer Odessa, 78- 
.69; Shreiner Institute, 85-44; and Ho- 
ward County Junior College in the 
finals, 70-2. 

The opening game with the Wrang- 
lers of Odessa proved to be the only 
real test for the Tigers in the entire 
tournament. After trailing Ly as much 
as eight points after the first ten min- 
utes, the Tigers employed a full court 
press to completely disrupt the Odes- 
Si attack and come back to take a 
three point half-time lead, 39-36. After 
the intermission, the Tigers, behind 
the shooting of Heidebrecht and Don 
Miller, were never in serious trouble, 
although the Wranglers managed to 
come within two points of the Tigers 
early in the half. 

Displaying a deadly defense, the 
Tigers held what had proved to date 
to be the best scoring team in the 
tourney to 44 points while managing 
85 for themselves, to take the semi- 
final game against Shreiner Insti- 

winning streak by a score of 61 to 48, 
December 14. Heidebrecht and Dunbar 
were high for the locals with 28 and 
13 points, respectively.

in the second half, the Tigrs ran over 
the St. John's Eagles by a score of 87 
to 41 here on the local court, Decem- 
ber 17. 

The Tigers eight-game winning 
streak was broken January 8 when 
they traveled to Coffeyville to meet 
the defending state champions and 
dropped a 61 to 39 decision. The 
Tigers, who had just returned from 
the Big Spring Tournament just 
couldn't seem to find the range and 
the Ravens behind the fabulous play- 
ing of Vencent Knight, roared to 
victory. Heidebrecht was high for the 
locals with 9 points the lowest he has 
scored all season Knight was high for 
the victors with 26. 

Adding to the humiliation of an 87 
to 41 shellacking handed them by the 
Tigers December 17, the locals travel- 
ed to Winfield to beat the St. Johns

The closest Shreiner ever came to 
the Tigers was 3-2 after 30 seconds of 
play and the Cats were, on their way. 
Shreiner managed only 21 points in 
the first half while the Tigers were 
building up a comfortable 20-point, 
half-time lead, 41 to 21. 

In the second half, with the re- 
serves carrying the load, the Tigers 
moved to. -a 41-point lead to take the 
game, 85-44 and move to the finals. 

Early in the final game with Ho- 
ward County, Heidebrecht sank two 
early free throws to give A. C. a lead 
they never relinquished. Although ma- 
naging only 29 points in the first half 
the Tigers held the better team in the 
tourney to only 23 points to post a 
six point, 29-23 half-time. lead. 

Dunbar opened the scoring in the 
second stanza with two free throws 
and the Tigers were again on their 
way. Ark City took a quick 51-31 lead 
and were able to maintain nearly a 
20 point lead throughout the remain- 
der of the contest. Heidebrecht turned 
his best performance of the tourney, 
collecting 36 points to give him 86 
points for the tournament and a 23.7

Kahlermen off 
On Western 
Quest For Win 

Arkansas City's Tigers enter a cru- 
cial two game series in Western Divi- 
sion play next Friday and Saturday 
when they travel to Western Kansas 
to meet the Dodge City Conquista- 
dores and the Garden City Bronc Bus- 
ters. The Tigers return home to enter- 
tain the Independence Pirates of the 
Eastern Division in a non-conference 
game early the following week. 

In their previous meeting this year 
the Tigers eked out a 68 to 64 victory 
over a tough Dodge City team on the 
home floor and the following night the 
Tigers had to come from behind early 
in the first half to defeat Garden City, 
61 to 57. 

The Bengals will be at a slight dis- 
advantage when they make the trip 
west, as they will be playing on 
foreign courts and before hostile 

Ark City had a rough time in de- 
feating the Conqs here on the home 
floor and will be meeting the third 
leading scorer in the Western Divi- 
sion in Merle Sturd. The Tigers will 
have another rough game February 
15, when they travel on to Garden 
City to meet a fired-up Bronc Buster 
crew who 'will want revenge for the 
loss handed them by the locals. Once 
again the Tigers will be meeting two 
high scorers in Terry Herman and 
Leo Clanton of Garden City. 

"We hope to gain at least an even 
split on the road trip, but will try 
to win both games," Coach Kahler 
said last week. 

The Tigers will play host to the In- 
dependence Pirates, February 18. 
Coach Bob Snellen's Pirates will be 
out to avenge an earlier season loss to 
the Tigers by a score of 78 to 53 on 
the Pirate's home court. The Bucs are 
a much improved team compared to 
what they were at the opening of the 
cage season, and should give the Ti- 
gers a real battle. They have dropped 
only one game since that time, a 52 to 
54 loss rt the hands of the Cnffpv- 
ville Red R-vens in an Eastern Divi- 
sion contest. The Pirates are currentlv

Using a set-up offense and playing 
a tight defensive game the Arkansas 
City Tigers managed to withstand a 
desperate last-minute rally to defeat a 
fired-up Parsons Cardinals team by a 
score of 70 to 67 in a non-conference 

The Bengals took a quick 2 to lead 
but the Cardinals came back to tie the 
score at 2 to 2. Ark City once again 
took a 4-2 lead, and from this point 
were never behind in the game. At 
times during the first half the Tigers 
held as much as a 12-point lead, but 
the sharpshooting of Art Nichols and 
Larry Whetzel cut this lead to six 
points and thus the first half of play 
ended with the score 33 to 27 in favor 
of the Tigers. 

The second half opened with En- 
gland hitting a fielder but, Dunbar 
who played a tremendous game, hit 
a fielder to make the score 35 to 29, 
the widest margin of the half. As the 
period progressed the Caids pressed 
closer, and trailed by only two points 
w r hen Heidebrecht and Perry fouled 
out with four minutes remaining in 
the game. 

With less than 10 seconds left to 
play ard the Tigers leading 68 to 67, 
Ware fouled Hamm, who made two 
free throws to clinch the game and 
give the Bengals their fifteenth vict- 
ory in 16 starts. 

The scoring for the Timers was as 
follows: Punhar 20, Heidebrecht 19. 
Hpmm 13, Miller 10, Perry 6, and 
Reid 2. Art Nichols had 26 points for 
the Cardinals and was closely fol- 
lowed in the scoring department by 

Larry Whetzel, with 21. 

Dragons get 
Revenge over 
Bengals, 74-70 

Never able to overcome a first half 
deficit that reached as many as eight 
points, the Tigers dropped their first 
conference tilt to the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons at the Aud-Gym Friday 
night, 74 to 70. 

The biggest margin either team 
could accomplish was nine points, that 
by Hutch midway through the second 

Del Heidebrecht, who fouled out 
with less than three minutes left in 
the game, led the Tigers in scoring 
with 28 points, followed by Hamm 
with 13 and Lewis with 11. 

The loss gave the Tigers five wins 
and one loss in league play and a 17 
and 2 record for the season. The Ben- 
gals, ranked fourth nationally, still 
remain leaders in conference play. 

The Dragons, apparently humiliated 
by Heidebrecht's 49-point splurge at 
the Hutchinson Sports Arena 10 days 
previously, had the tall Ark smothered 
on every play, with two and sometime 
three men converging on him, yet he 
grabbed 13 rebounds as well as scor- 
ing his average number of points. 
Tiger shooting was off generally, how- 
ever, and the Dragon drive and floor 
play were better than the home team 
could muster.

If Mike Engel, new student council 
prexy, can carry out his plan for com- 
pletely revamping the S. C. and start 
from scratch, it will be one of the big- 
gest improvements made in juco in 
many a day. If this meets with the 
approval of the powers that be, and if 
Mike can or will do it, this will be one 
of the best steps that have ever been 
taken to improve the pathetic social 
problem that tries to survive here in 
juco. I believe that Mike is the best 
man for the job and will try, at least, 
to get something done. The question 
is, will anyone else try or support 


It was good to see some of the 
local "bush league." deciding to 
spend a night out in the open, 
making the D. E. A. sock-hop, but 
I wonder if the day will ever dawn 
when the junior college organiza- 
tions will nr>t have to depend upon 
the local high school to provide 
the majority of the attendance at 
one of their sp msored function. 

Anyone needing lessons in the art 
of driving through barbed-wire fences, 
see Jack Neff. It seems that, while 
returning from Gene Anstine's coun- 
try party, Jack got off on the wrong 
road. Never one to go back on any- 
thing it was decided that forward was 
the only direction. The only catch, a 
four-strand, barbed-wire ferine. No one 
in the car was injured but the car is 
showing the worse of it. I guess this 
would almost make Jack a qualified

Speaking of the country party, 
everyone who missed it, and there 
weren't too many who did, missed 
one of the best and most inexpensive 
shindigs of the year. The only draw- 
back was finding the country estate 
where it was held. 

One of the outstanding high school 
backs in Oklahoma has informed 
Coach Clint Webber, that he intends to 
enroll at junior college next fall. He 
is Freeman Crawford, a halfback who 
scored almost 200 points in his only 
two years of high school football for 
Al Sampler's very fine Hominy, Bucks. 
Crawford, a very speedy and elusive 
type runner, much on the same order 
as Kennv Daniels, is also a first string 
roundballer and a track and field man, 
and could be >a definite asset to the 
squad next year. 

Looks as though the Quarter- 
back Club, Student Council, or 
some other worthwhile organi- 
zation would find some way to 
give the sophomore athletic let- 
termen an award of some kind. A 
sweater or something anything- 

After the tremendous success en- 
joyed by the tennis and golf teams 
in the past few years at junior college, 
it would Le a shame if it all fell apart 
now. Both teams were hit hard by 
graduation, with only three lettermen 
of the golf team returning to both 
squads. Everyone who has any abili- 
ty at all see tennis coach Louderback 
or golf coach Sewell some time soon. 
The season for both sports will soon 
be here.

Juco House 
Project On Way 
To Completion 

Machine Shop Students Work to 
Earn Certificates of Proficiency 

The junior college carpentry class 
is entering the second semester of 
work on the sixth house of an annual 
undertaking in building construction. 

Second semester members of the 
class are Tom Campbell, Buell Dun- 
can, Gary Miller, Victor Morgan, Don 
Palmer, Delbert Palmer, Dennis Wil- 
son, and Dave Daulton. 

The 1958 house has three bedrooms, 

with closet space in each, living room 

nd dining room combined, kitchen, 

nd ' ath. The floors are all hardwood 

ith the exception of the bath and 

itchen, which are asphalt tile. There 

s a linen closet in the hall, a coat 

loset in the entrance of the living 

roam, fnd built-in cabinets in the 

' itchen. 

It is wired for 220 as well as for 
110 volts, has perimiter heating, is 
fully insulated in ceiling and walls,

Rotarians Honor Printers 
In Bookplate Contest 

The Rotary Club of Arkansas City 
honored the juco printers at a meet- 
ing held February 3, in the Cadet 
Room of the Osage Hotel. 

Members of the class attending 
were Larry Fleming, Ormand Wilson, 
Julian Llamas, Jerry Stover, Victor 
Barnes, and Don Clark. A. F. Buffo, 
instructor, was also a guest. 

Instead of a prize being given for 
the winning entry in the C. E. St. 
John Memorial Shelf bookplate con- 
test held recently in the printing de- 
partment, the students voted to donate 
their time and efforts to the cause. 
Consequently the Rotary Club saw fit 
to invite the entrants to a dinner and

A certificate of proficiency which 
will assist the applicant in securing a 
job in the metal trades is the goal of 
15 college students enrolled in Reece 
Bohannon's machine shop class. 

"This is a course which I recom- 
mend that all pre-engineering stu- 
dents take," states Mr. Bohannon. 

Before a student receives a certifi- 
cate of proficiency there are certain 
requirements which he must meet. 
Some of these are learning to taper 
which is to make one end of a piece of 
metal bigger than the other, to tem- 
per or heat a piece of metal to a cer- 
tain degree and then dip it in water to 
harden in, cutting a piece of metal, 
milling or cutting la piece of metal 
flat on one side, to cut threads, and to 
forge and weld a piece of metal. 

Students in the machine shop learn 

how to turn down armatures on elec- 
tric motors, make electric motors, and 
grind valves. 

Some of the projects which a begin- 
ning student learns to make in the 
machine shop are a set of punches, 
hammers, wrenches, and vises. 

Donald White has already completed 
the course of study and several others 
are expected to receive a certificate of 
profiiciency at the end of the semester. 
Other persons in the beginning class 
are Veron Russon, Don White, Paul 
Bell, Jerry Stover, Leon White, Larry 
Jordan, and Don Evinger. 

Members of the advanced class are 
Jim Brown, Lloyd Dobbins, Kenny 
Dunbar, Larry Harger, Gene Norton, 
Robin Thorpe, Everett Revves, and 
Gordon Hock. 

Woodwork Students 
Own Furniture 

Woodworking students have been 
turning out some interesting projects 
which are to be used in their homes. 
Such items as Hollywood beds, clothes 
closets, coffee tables, magazine racks, 
and smoking tables are taking form. 

Ralph Rowe, a Winfield sophomore, 
is making a clothes closet which he 
will use in his home. Rowe has al- 
ready completed one clothes press. Af- 
ter completion of his work here at the 
Junior College, he plans on going to 
Pittsburg State Teachers College 
where he will major in industrial arts 
in preparation for teaching. 

Two of the students who are making 
Hollywood beds of oak are Jim Brown 
and Raymond Atkins. Richard Bow- 
man is also making a bed but his will 
be of red cedar. Gilford Branch is 
making a set of twin beds of oak, and 
hns already completed one of the beds. 

Paul Bell has already made one bed 
and is in the process of turning out 
another one. Bell is making the beds 
for his home. Gordon Hock is in the 
process - of making a smoking table 
and mafrazinp rack. Hock, a freshman, 
is also planning on majoring in indus- 
trial arts. .

Kahler Loses First 
Game to Pratt 

The Bengals suffered their second 
straight conference defeat, February 
4, 71 to 65, when they traveled to 
Pratt to meet the Beavers. It was the 
first Pratt victory over a Kahler- 
coached team. 

With less than one minute left to 
play in the first half Miller hit a 
fielder to give the Tigers a 35 to 30 
lead but Bartel came back to hit two 
fielders to pull the Beavers within one 
point at halftime, 35 to 34. 

Pratt took the tip-off to open the 
second half and immediately took a 
37 to 36 lead on Tranbarger's fielder, 
but Miller hit a fielder to give the Ti- 
gers a one-point lead. For five min- 
utes the two teams exchanged baskets 
with Pratt taking a 50-48 lead with 
14 minutes left to go, and from this 
point the Beavers were never behind, 
although the score was tied at 58 all 
with less than 10 minutes remaining. 

"We just didn't have the defense 
and the rebounding that we needed to 
win -'he ball game," said Coach Dan 
Kahler. , , 

Tigers Must Win 
And Wait for 
Title Chance 

If the junior college is to remain in 
the running for the Jayhawk Juco 
conference crown, they must win the 
remainder of their conference games 
and hope that someone can knock off 
the Dodere City Conqs. 

The Tigers, now holding second 
place behind Dodge with a six and 
three record, have dropped three out 
of their last four league starts and 
now trail the Conqs by half a game. 

The race can wind up in a three- 
way tie among Hutch, Dodge and A. C. 
if Hutch, now in third with a five 
and three record, can beat Dodge and 
if the Tigers can go the rest of the 
way undefeated. Hutchinson meets 
meets Dodge Tuesday night, and the 
next conference game for the Tigers is 
February 28 against El Dorado. 

The bigger the bankroll, the tighter 
the rubber band.

Arks Bust 
usters, Lose 

Stellar work by Bengal reserves 
George Caven and Charles Reid helped 
the Bengals break a three-game losing 
streak and became the second team 
this season to defeat the Garden City 
Bronco Busters on their own hard- 
woods by a score of 75 to 70, at 
Garden City, February 15. 

With only 50 seconds gone in the 
game, Heidebrecht hit a fielder to 
give the Tigers a 2 to lead, but 
Herman tied the score. As the game 
progressed, it looked like a repeat 
performance of the Dodge City game 
as the Bronc Busters took a five point 
lead with more than 14 minutes to 
play in the first half. Then the Tigers 
seemed to ccme alive and worked to a 
38 to 36 lead at halftime. During the 
first half the score was tied five times 
and the lead changed hands 3 times. 

As the second half opened Wade hit 
a fielder to tie the score at 38-all, but 
the Tigers came back to t?ke the lead 
and were never in serious trouble 
the remainder of the contest, although 
the Broncos came within three points 
with more than a minute to play. Mil- 
ler hit two free throws with 59 seconds 
left to play to cinch the game for the 
Tigers with 5:55 left in the contest, 
when they led by 7 points. 

Scoring for the Tigers was as fol- 
lows: Heidebrecht 34, Miller 9, Lewis 
and Reid 8, Dunbar and Caven 6, and 
Dabrow and Jordan 2. 

Dodge City Conquistadores gained 
sweet revenge and took over first 
place in the Western Division as they 
defeated the Bengals by a score of 
68 to 53, at Dodge City/February 14. 

The Tigers never led throughout 
the contest. After a first minute 2-2 
tie Arks hit a cold streak, and unable 
to find range, registered only two 
more points while Dodge City was 
getting 16 in the next nine minutes 
of play. In the last ten minutes of 
the half the Tigers were still unable 
to find the range and scored only 13 
more points while the Conqs con- 
tinued their warm streak and hit for 
ten points to gain a 28-17 half time 

The largest lead enjoyed by the 
Conqs in the first half was 15 points, 
28-13, with a little more than a min- 
ute to go. The most excitins: moment 
of the game came with less than three 
seconds to go as Dabrow hit a 25-foot 
jump shot.

ln~l£ f/.AN OM CAMPUS 

by Dick Bibier 

Jerry Towell 

The student council is now trying 
to establish a new recruiting plan that 
will greatly enlarge the area covered 
and should, if properly carried out, 
attract a gre.t many more students 
to Arkansas City. 

The plan is to send representative 
students from the various categories 
of the school, such as from the ath- 
letic, music, and scholastic depart- 
ments, who, after brief assemblies in 
each school, would be available to an- 
swer questions concerning Ark City. 
To date, only faculty members have 
been used. 

The plan should create a bigger in- 
terest in the school as a whole, and 
not,-, only in the music department. 
Before, only the choir or some similiar 
entertainment group was sent. No stu- 
dents represented the athletic depart- 
ment, publications, or such as that. 
Since acquiring a sqecific knowledge 
has ceased to be the cnly reason for 
attending college, these other depart- 
ments should be exploited along with 
vyhat'.has already been started. 

Despite all the plans being made for 
the Tigerama, all thoughts are being 
concentrated on providing entertain- 
rnent for the visitors but nothing is 
be ng done for their comfort. It will 
be this year, as it has been in the past, 
a stand-up affair unless you can 
smuggle in your own table and chair. 
Ju t make sure that a table and chair 
are the only things that you try to 
smuggle in. 

The event is by far, the biggest 
thing staged by the junior college "and 
ft eetns as thoirrh «ome arrangements 


could be made to set up some tables 
and chairs, possibly in the clubrooms, 
so that you could rest your weary 
bones every now and then. Heretofore, 
the only tables that -have been pro- 
vided were those in the refreshment 
loom, and even then you have to stand 
in line to get one. Just one of the 
things that will have to be ironed out. 
A group- of junior college backers 
have sot together and bought the 
Tiger cagers new warm-ups that 
will be delivered in time tor the 
regional and national tournaments 
this year. The group, all Ark City 
business men, bought the outfits 
out of their own pockets and had 
them delivered to Dodge City so 
that they would be there when the 
Bengal cagers arrived. Everyone 
should find out who these men are 
and express their thanks and 

Speaking of the junior college back- 
ers, it's the actions of men like these 
that really puts the town behind the 
team. When a few do something like 
this, it either makes everyone so proud 
of them or so ashamed of himself that 
he too, wants to do something to help. 
If you can get the town behind a 
team, then you never have to worry 

about where the new students are go- 
ing to come from or who next year's 
football and basketball players will be. 
But, the actions of the students will 
greatly determine just how much is 
done, and you can't let the town folks 
do it all. 

As students, we have to give some- 
thing in return. This could and does 
include many things. The main one is 
to show your appreciation by acting 
like decent human beings and not 
leaving the impression that all of us 
each be judged by the few who haven't 
learned decency. 

Postpone Pinata 

The Spanish Club "Pinata" his 
again been postponed, and will be held 
^t a later date, according to Miss 
Anne Hawley, club sponsor. Because 
of the heavy basketball schedule foi 
the coming weeks, no definite date 
can be set at the present time.

igers See 
iffch Regiona 

After leaving early this morning 
the Tigers are in Dodge City where 
they will compete in the Region VI 
tournament and will be seeking their 
fifth win in six years. 

The tournament got underway at 
7:30 p.m. Wednesday as the Garden 
City Bronc Busters played Northern 
Oklahoma of Tonkawa. At 9:15 p.m. 
the Dodge City Conquistadores met 
Central College of McPherson. 

Tonight the Hutchinson Blue Drag- 
ons test the El Dorado Grizzlies at 
7:30 and at 9:15 the Tigers go against 
the Pratt Beavers. Seedings for the 
tournament are Dodge City first, 
Hutchinson second, and the Tigers 

In regular season play the Tigers 
defeated the Bevers here in the Aud- 
Gym by the score of 74 to 53, but in a 
return game played at Pratt the 
Eevers gained revenge, 71 to 65. 

1 rovided the Tigers win tonight 
they will meet the winner of the 
Hutchinson-El Dorado game at 9:15 
p.m. March 6. In Division play the Ti- 
gers have defeated the Grizzles twice, 
but were not quite as fortunate 
against the Blue Dragons as they split 
with them. Should the Tigers win in 
the semi-finals they will more than 
likely meet the Dodge City Conquis- 
tadores. The Tigers have also split 
games with the Conqs, winning at 
home, 68 to 64, and losing at Dodge 
City, 68 to 53. 

Tigers Win Third 
Straight After 
Breaking Famine 

Proving definitely that the famine 
which saw Ark City drop three consec- 
utive contests, has been broken, the 
junior college. Tigers won their third 
straight game after ending their 
slump by stopping Iola Red Devils, 
70-57, February 22. It was strictly a 
team effort, both offensively and de- 
fensively, as three of the Tiger start- 
ing five hit in the double figures, and 
all but one of the players seeing action 
broke into the scoring column. De- 
fensively the Devils had to rely on 
one, and sometimes two, men to ac- 
tually keep them in the running. 

Dave Dunbar's fielder in the opening 
minutes of the game gave the Bengals 
a lead which they never lost. The Red 

Devils managed to keep it close during 
the first half, which ended with the 
Tigers owning a slim 7-point lead, 
32-25. The Tigers opened a 15-point 
margin early in the second half that 
stretched to as many as 19 in the late 
stages of the game. From there it was 
only a matter of time as the Bengals 
posted their eighteenth win against 
only four loses. 

Del Heidebrecht led the Arks with 
25 points followed by Dunbar with 14, 
Lewis, 12, Reid, 6, Miller, 4, Graves,4, 
Dabrow,4, and Caven, 1. 

Bengals Avenge 
Earlier Loss 

I o Kavens 

Sweet revenge was tasted here, 
February 25 when the Bengals clip- 
ped the Coffeyville Red Raven's wings 
and defeated them by a score of 53 
to 44. The Ravens beat the Arks 61 
to 39 in January to administer the 
season's first loss. 

The Ravens jumped to an early 6 
to lead and it looked like they were 
going to make a repeat performance 
of the game at Coffeyville but with 
16:40 remaining in the first half 
Heidebrecht hit a fielder and Miller 
a free throw to make the score 6 to 3. 
With a little more than fourteen min- 
utes left Estes hit a pair of free 
throws and George Lewis hit a fielder 
to give the Ravens a 8-point lead, the 
largest enjoyed by them. 

The Tigers who played a great de- 
fensive and offensive game the whole 
night cut the Raven lead to one point 
at the end of the first half, 20 to 19. 

As the second half begun Dunbar 
hit. a fielder to make the score 21 to 
20 and give the Bengals the lead for 
the first time. The Bengals were never 
behind more than one point in the sec- 
ond half, 28 to 27, but with fifteen 
minutes left to play Heidebrecht and 
Dunbar hit fielders to give the Ben- 
gals a 31 to 28 lead and from this 
point they were never behind. 

The Bengals led by as much as thir- 
teen points, 48-35, in the second half 
on the fine defensive play of Don Mil- 
ler, Dave Dunbar, Flovd Perry, Jim 
Lewis, Charles Reid, George Caven, 
Del Heidebrecht, and Stan Graves. 
Although none of the Tiger B team 
reserves saw action in the game they 
also helped win the game by their 
helping out in practice and their sup- 
port fmm the bench. It was great 
team victory and cne that the mem- 
bers of the team can be proud they 

With 3:35 left in the game Del 
Heidebrecht received a back injury 
as he went in for a lay-up and was 
upended by a Coffeyville player. 

Cats Stop Bear 
Rally, Win 
Season Finale 

After posting what appeared to be 
a comfortable, 18-point margin, with 
less than eight minutes to go in the 
game, the Ark City Tigers had to 
fight off a determined rally by the El 
Dorado Grizzlies to win their final 
regular season contest, 70-67. The 
Grizzlies had actually narrowed the 
margin to only one point at the end 
of the game, but Charles Reid was 
fouled just as the horn sounded and 
sank two free throws to give the Ben- 
gals their three-point margin. 

The Tigers were never able to 
post a really substantial margin in 
the first half, which ended with the 
Cats leading 35-24, but the Arks 
easily pulled away in the early min- 
utes of the second period. Thinking: the 
game to be safely tucked away, Coach 
Dan Kahler substituted freely in the 
final minutes and El Dorado suddenly 
came to life cutting the 18-point Titrer 
lead to only one. The Tigers managed 
to hang on, and posted their twentv- 
first win of the season against only 
four losses. The win left the Bengals 
tied with Dodge City for first place 
in league play, each with seven and 
three records. Hutchinson made it a 
three-way split by defeating Garden 
City Saturday night. 

Independence No. 17 
For Tiger Cagers 

The Bengals posted their seven- 
teenth win of the season against four 
losses as they stopped the Indepen- 
dance Pirates, 79-64, in the interdivi- 
sional contest, February 18, at the 
home gym. 

Not until halfway through the se- 
cond period were the Tigers able to 
maintain a lead sufficient to stop the 
bid of Independence to upset the Cats' 
hopes of getting back into winning 

Both teams maintained a terrific 
pace during the entire first half, with 
neither team being 1 able to post a sub- 
stantial lead, and the half ended in a 
de*d heat, 34-all. 

The second stanza was much the 
s°me way until the midway point, 
when Jim Lewis hit a fielder to five 
the Tigers a 56-55 lead that the Ben- 
gals increased in the final minutes 
to 15-peints, to win 79-64. 

Four Tigers hit in the double fig- 
ures, led bv Heidebrecht with 25, Dun- 
bar with 19, Lewis with 13, and Reid 
"ith 10. The remainder of the scoring 
Perry 6, and Debrow 2.

Junior college students and the 
townspeople should feel very proud 
that we have a man like Dan Kahler 
in our school system. Under the cir- 
cumstances he has done a remarkable 
job with the Tiger cage team, accomp- 
lishing more than just winning games 
and adding trophies to the already full 
show cases. 

Before the season was half over, 
he had lost three of what had been 
his starting ballciub. Instead of re- 
tiring to the proverbial "crying towel," 
as most coaches are prone to do in 
such a situation, he made the most 
of what he had and the Tigers finished 
the season with a record that would 
do any school proud. 

They say that the players make the 
coach, but I believe that this is one 
instance when the players cannot 
be given the majority of the credit. 
It's true that the players must have 
the spirit and desire to win, but some- 
one must install that spirit and desire. 
Under such adverse conditions, the 
coach is truly shown in his ability to 
install that will to win when it is 
needed most. 


If the players are of the potential 
that they can win on ability alone, 
then there is not as much need for the 
fortitude to be installed, but, as things 
developed, some ingredient had to be 
mixed with the ability that the team 
did possess. This is the thing for 
which Mr. Kahler must be given the 
most credit, installing within the team 
the desire to win when the job was 
most difficult and when it was needed 



by Dick £ib!er 


I do not want to discredit the team 
in any way, because what they have 
accomplished must be admired, even 
by the most partisan observer. It is 
just a case of giving the most credit 
where the most credit is due. 

Just because basketball season 
is over, let us not forget that the 
school sponsors other programs 
and they deserve support just as 
the basketball and football teams 
do. Do your part yourself; don't 
let someone else do it. 
Plans are still not complete for the 
Tigerama coming up next month, 
other than the hiring of the band, but 
it seems as though my suggestions for 
some seating arrangments have met 
the approval of part of the people 
in charge of the dance. 

According to Sharon Quick, social 
chairman of the dance, the plan is 
being seriously considered. If it is 
approved by everyone else, tables and 
chairs will be set up in the clubrooms, 
along with the punch bowl and a small 
space for dancing for those who dis- 
like crowds. I think it will make things 
more comfortable for everyone and 
certainly won't do any harm to try. 
Everyone who has attended the 

dance before knows how crowded it 
is in the auditorium and this will make 
more room, give everyone a chance to 
sit one out, and let the visitors get a 
view of the entire building. 

Anyone having any type comments 
or criticisms that they wish to express 
please feel free to use this column. 
The purpose of this paper is to serve 
the student body in anyway possible 
so, if you do have something that you 
w ish everyone to know, do it right, let 
us print it. 

Leave your notes in Mr. Johnsons* 
box in the office, either with my name 
or "As I See It" written on it. If it 
is at all possible or permissable, I 
guarantee that it will be printed. 

It has been said that, "Were it 
possible, man's greatest asset would 
be his ability to live alone. Since it 
is not possible, man's greatest asset 
is his ability to live creditably with 
other men." This being true, so is it 
true that we should not let a few do 
all the work while we sit aside waiting 
to reap the benefits of other's work 
When Tigerama rolls around, show 
that you want to help by offering your 
services wherever needed

For 1958 Tiger, Juco Annual 

The final copy for the 1957-58 Tiger, 
college annual was sent to the lithog- 
raphers in Oklahoma City, March 17, 
according to Allan Maag, faculty 
snonsor. It was just in time to meet 
the deadline. 

This year's annual, which will be 
distributed sometime in May, will con- 
tain 64 pages. The last copy to be 
c-imnleted was the material on the 
iurior college basketball team and the 
spring sports program. 

Miss Gave Iden 


"I appreciate the privilege of hav- 
ing been in the Arkansas City school 
system so many years. I have loved 
every minute of teaching, and enjoyed 
the students." 

That is the modest statement made 
by Miss Gaye Iden, who has announ- 
ced her retirement in June after hav- 
ing taught for 40 years in the senior 
high school and junior college. 

In 1955, Miss Iden was chosen for 
the Kansas State "Master Teacher 
Award," in the annual selection under 
the auspices of Emporia State Teach- 
ers College. Miss Iden's last previous 
position was in the Eureka school sys- 
tem before coming here in 1918. 

She is active in many organizations, 
among them, Kansas State Teachers 
Association, National Education As- 
sociation, Delta Karma Gamma. Amer- 
ican Assocation of University Women, 
and various science assocations such 
as the American Association for the 
Advancement of Science, American 
Association Physics Teachers, Ameri- 
can Institute of Physics, National Sci- 
ence Teachers Association, and Kansas 
Physical Science Association. 

She has taught physics, general 
physical science and geology to col- 
lege classes, and has had similar high 
school assignments. 

Tributes to Miss Iden were made by 
students, faculty, and graduates. 

"She has spent many faithful hours 
with students staying after school un- 
til dark, trying to get them to under- 
stand the subiect better," D. C. Stork, 
college chemistry and mathematics 

instructor, who has been a fellow 
teacher since 1922, said last week. 

"Through the years she is my long 
lasting and best beloved teacher," said 
Mrs. Kenneth Ross, a high school and 
junior college graduate, and a former 
member of the board of education. 

Two Arkansas City attorneys who 
studied under Miss Iden in high school 
and junior college were high in praise 
of her work: 

"I consider her one of the best 
teachers I was under, when I came to 
high school. She took a personal re- 
sponsibility in getting the students to 
get what they were supposed to get 
out of her class," said Tom Pringle. 

"Miss Iden's long fine career as a 
teacher in the local schools has helped 
hundreds and hundreds of local stu- 
dents, and her influence for learning 
has been outstanding in this commun- 
ity. We are sorry to see her retire," 
affirmed Don Hickman. 

Mike Engel, new student council 
president, spoke for the current stu- 
dent body thus: 

"I think the students of Arkansas 
City junior college hate to see our 
physics teacher, Miss Iden, retire. She 
has done a superior job in the years 
she has taught in the junior college 
and has won many friends. I think 
each one of us wish her good luck as 
she leaves the school system." 

Larry Fleming Tops Again 
In Printing Design Contest 

Larry Fleming, freshman, did it 
again. He was the winner of the Ninth 
Annual Design Contest, sponsored 
locally by the department of printing 
of the city schools. Fleming recently 
designed the winning bookplate for 
the C. E. St. John library shelf spon- 
sored by Rotary. 

With 44 entries in the contest, 
Fleming came out on top with Charles 
Branch, high school senior, and 
Charles Bradshaw, high school sopho- 
more running second and third. 

Five honorable mention awards were 
given, four being taken by high school 
students, and one by a junior high 

With a total of 100 points possible, 
the winning design received 95. It fea-

Courageous Arks 
Cop Third Place 
In Region 


An injury riddled Tiger squad, play- 
ing on their great spirit alone, won 
third place in the regional tournament 
at Dodge City, March 8, with a 66 to 
62 win over Garden City. The Tigers 
reached the semi-finals of the tourna- 
ment with a 56 to 53 victory over the 
Pratt Beavers, but lost out in the 
semi-finals, 62 to 72, to the Hutchin- 
son Blue Dragons. 

Playing pretty much control ball 
in the last few minutes of the game, 
the Tigers were able to squeak out a 
56 to 53 victory over the Pratt Bea- 
vers, March 6. During the first half 
both teams played fast and furious 
games with the score tied four times 
and the lead changing seven times. 
The largest lead held in the first half 
was five points by the Beavers (31-26), 
with 1:21 left, but Heidebrecht cut 
the lead to three points on a pair of 
free throws to end the scoing in the 
first half. As the second half opened 
Miller, Heidebrecht and Lewis each hit 
free throws to tie the score at 31, and 
Dunbar hit a field goal to put the Ti- 
gers in front to stay. 

In the semi-final game, March 7, 
the Tigers lost their chance to reach 
the finals as the Hutchinson Blue Dra- 
gons smothered the Tigers with a 72 
to 62 loss. From the opening whistle 
to the closing gun it was all Hutchin- 
son as the Tigers were able only to 
come within one point in the first half 
and three points in the second half. 
During the game the Blue Dragons 
held leads by as much as 14 points 
and held a 37 to 23 lead at halftime 
As the second half opened the Tigers 
came back strong and cut the Hutchin- 
son lead to three points with 12:12 
left in the game, but the Dragons 
again pulled away. 

The Tigers made it three in a row 
this year over the Garden City Bronc 
Busters as they defeated them 66 to 
62 to win third place. As has happened 
so many times this year, the Bengals 
had to come from behind to defeat 
the Broncs. During the first half the 
Arks trailed by as much as five points 
but on the fine playing of Miller, Dun- 
bar, Heidebrecht, Lewis, Graves, and 
Reid, cut the lead and took a 6 point 
lead at halftime, 35-29. In the se- 
cond half the Bronc Busters came 
h^ek strong - and held a 54-50 lend with 
7:35 left, the Tigers began to hit and 
tied the score and took a lead which 
they never relinquished. 

Heidebrecht led the Tiger scoring 
the three games with 63 points, and 
was followed by Dunbar with 41, Mil-

Coach Reeee Bohannon's Tiger "B" 
team ended its current basketball sea- 
son February 25, as they were de- 
feated by a strong APCO five by the 
score of 44 to 58. 

The Tiger "B" team had won 29 
straight games at home covering a 
two-year period, tut suddenly the 
string met a disastrous end December 
17, when a high-spirted Southwestern 
"B" team invaded the Aud-Gym and 
broke the "B" teams winning streak. 

Teams which the Tiger "B" team 
played were Arkansas City Teachers, 
APCO (2), Southwestern "B" (3), 
Prince Electric of Enid (2), Welch 
Cleaners of Wichita (2), Alumni ''B'', 
and the Wellington All-Stars. The 
young Arks ended the season with a 
6-6 record, and outscored its oppon- 
ents, 690 to 687. 

"This is the toughest schedule we 
have ever played and the boys did a 
good job," explained Coach Bohannon. 

Members of the "B" squad during 
the season are John Dabrow, John 
Cary, Howard Clark, Charles Reid, 
Larry Jordan, Floyd Perry, George 
Caven, Clint Ryan. Bob Liming, Wil-

Western Division Championship here 
March 11, by defeating Dodge City 
61 to 57 in a play-off, but lost in the 
state play-offs as Coffeyville won the

For the second time in six years, 
the Bengals of Coach Dan Kahler 
were tied for first place in the West-

The Tigers met Dodge City here, 
March 11, after the Conquistadores 
had defeated the Hutchinson Blue 
Dragons 67 to 60 on the Dragons' 
home court. During the first half the

The Bengals traveled to Coffeyville, 
March 13, in an attempt to bring the

Frantic and herculean efforts are 
being made to complete preparations 
for the 1958 Tigerama to be held April 
11. The social committee and students 
have been going at a heartbreaking 
pace to get all the necessary arrang- 
ments made, with only a week and 
one day until zero hour. 

This year's theme is "School Daze", 
having to do with the everyday hap- 
penings of the school. Probably every- 
one attending the gala affair will see 
himself in the decorations that will 
be around the walls of the auditorium. 

A precedent is being set this year 
in that there is more use of the club- 
room to hold the expected overflow 
crowd. The music will be piped down 
to the clubroom and there will be 
space for dancing, and an informal 
refreshment center will be located in 
classrooms off the central hall as in 
past years. 

The band for the dance is the "Five 
Guys" from Emporia State Teachers 
college. They hold the reputation of 
being the best college band in this 
part of the country. 

All old grads, senior classes from 
22 surrounding towns and the admin- 
istrative staff of the public schools 
cf Ark City, the faculty for the high 
school and college, and the members of 
the board of Education have all re- 
ceived invitations to this top social 
affair of the college year.

carload was assured by Mr. Maag. 

Sharon Quick, chairman of Tiger- 
ama, has announced the work schedule 
for the dance as Thursday, April 3, 
and Anril 7, 8, 9, and 10. Everyone is 
cordially invited to accept the invi-

It appears that some of the stu- 
dents here in ACJC feel that since I 
expressed the way I. feel, and think 
everyone of us should feel, concern- 
ing Coach Kahler, that I was belittl- 
ing the members of the college 
basketball team, the cheering section 
and leaders, and everyone else who 
had contributed anything to the suc- 
cess of the team. I have noticed, how- 
ever, that the criticisms have come 
from those who have never dealt with 
Mr. Kahler in his capacity, since those 
who have known his value and wish 
that his accomplishments could be 
applauded" on an even higher level. 

I had no intention of discrediting 
anyone and those who complain most 
are those that I feel, have done least.

For the benefit of those who do not 
already know the reason for the boys 
who are sporting the beards, I offer 
this expaiiation: 

la 1889, a portion of Oklahoma In- 
dian Territory, known as the Cherokee 
Strip, was opened by the government 
to be claimed by anyone who was de- 
sirous of settling, in that region. The 
opening w*as accomplished by a land 
run and was a simple process of first 
come, first served. 

Although Guthrie, where the cele- 
bration is held, was not the site of the 
beginning of the run, it was the cap- 
itdl at that time, and every year -a 
celebrationis held there to cornemorate 
the opening of the Chei-okee - Strip. 
Everyone- attending the celebration -is 
offered a reward for the size' of the . 
beard attained and also has to pay a 
tine if there is none growing- n.t all. 
And some beard" growers MIGHT go 
to Guthrie;.-

ever . will be, accomplished, wouldn't 

it be nice and look much better if we 

could outlaw the stag lines, both male 

and female, at Tigerama 1 I'm not say- 
ing that they are wrong, but neither 
am I upholding them, especially at 
affairs like Tigerama. 

The plans were finally approved for

Six Musicians with 13 Horns 
To Play for 1958 Tigerama 

The most danceable band in the area 
will play for the Juco grads, faculty 
members, senior classes, /and juco 
students and their dates. The Five 
Guys, a band of six musicians who 
play 13 different instruments, and 
have a vocal group on the Four Fresh- 
men model, are coming to play at the 
1958 Tigerama, April 11. The Guys 
hail from Emporia State Teachers 

"Versatility is one of the most im- 
portant attributes of any dance band, 
and one in which Emporia's "Five 
Guys" are not in the least lacking," 
Paul Smith wrote in "The Bulletin", 
campus newspaper, recently. 

In the fall of 1955 the organization 
was just in the business for its own 
enjoyment, and was known as Four 
Guys and a Gal, the gal being a 
vocalist. The group accepted an invi- 

tation to play a dance on the campus, 
and immediately decided to become 

Members of the band include Don 
Strait, Doug Lyon, Tex Smiley, all 
founding members and Roy Hi Mer- 
man, Carl Ti'ibble, and Max Donald- 
son. - Smiley is a faculty member, 
Lyon a recent graduate, and the rest 
are students, freshman to senior. 

The band has a busy schedule from 
now until summer, for on April 10 
they will participate with the Pastels 
and the. Don Conard Quintet in a "Jazz 
for Spring" concert to be held on the 
E-State campus; on March 28 and 
April 4 they will be at Grace's in 
Topeka; and on April 19 they play a 
fraternity dance at Washburn Uni- 
versity of Topeka. Recent dates have 
included the new K-State union and 
parties at K. U.

a head coach in the city school system 
is J. C. Louderback. Mr. Louderback 
took over the college and high school 
tennis reins after Raymond Judd's 
retirement to become junior high 
school principal. 

After a very impressive record in 
high school, lettering in football, bas- 
ketball, and tennis, Louderback en- 
tered the junior college in 1952, again 
lettering in the same three sports tor 
his two years here. He received tiie 
Kiwanis Most Inspirational Player 
award for basketball in 1954, and is 
considered by many as the greatest 
all-around athlete to come from the 
Ark City school system. 

Del Heidebrecht 
Named to All-Annerica 
Juco Cage Team 

Delbert Heidebrecht, C feet 6 inch, 
190-pound basketball sophomore cen- 
ter from Inman, has been chosen to 
the 1958 All-America second team by 
a committee of the National Junior 
College Athletic Association. Last 
year he received honorable mention for 

While playing for ACJC, Heide- 
brecht broke several records, including 
ihe individual scoring record for one 
game, single season scoring record, 
career sccring record, rebound record 
and average points per game. These 
records were previously held by Ray- 
mond Potter, who played during the 
1951-52-and the 1952-53 seasons and 
was a member of the 1953 team which 
placed second in the National Tourna- 
ment. Heidebrecht was ranked tenth 
during the regular season among in- 
dividual scorers in the NJCAA. 

In breaking the individual scoring 
record for one game Heidebrecht hit 
for 49 points against Hutchinson. He 
scored 723 points during the regular 
season just finished, and had a total 
of 1,347 points in the two big years 
under the Tiger banner. In the re- 
bound department he pulled down 408 
rebounds as compared to 365 last year. 
He also averaged 23.3 points per game 
in 31 games, During the season Heid- 
ebrecht averaged 54 per cent of his 
shots from the field and 70 per cent 
form the free throw line. 

"I can attribute my success to 
Coach Dan Kahler and to my team- 
mates in helping me be voted to the 
All-America team and to be listed 
among the top ten juco basketball 
players," Heidebrecht told a Tiger 
Ta'es reporter last week. 

Heidebrecht is the son of Mr. and 
ili"- Guj Heidebrecht. of Inman. 

eather Stops 
Spring Sports 

With bad weather marring practice 
for the first weeks, the spring sports 
program for the junior college is hav- 
ing a hard time getting off the ground, 
but track coach Reece Bohannon, ten- 
nis coach J. C. Louderback, and golf 
coach Charles Sewell are looking for- 
ward to another fine year. 

The first competition of the track 
season will take place Thursday when 
the team travels to Tonkawa for a 
dual meet with Northern Oklahoma 
Junior College. Trials and intra-squad 
competition this week have determined 
the entrants in the Tcnkawa event. 

The entire tennis team, which took 
the state crown last year, was lost 
through graduation, but Coach Loud- 
erback is confident that he will find 
replacements for such as nationally 
ranked Jimmy Carter, Glenn (Ham- 
my) Smith, and Duane Houdek. 

The picture is almost reversed for 
Coach Sewell, who lost only Larryl 
Hutchins and Jack Anderson from 
last years' squad. Back for another 
year are Dave and Duane Pearce, 
George Graham, and Chuck Swayden. 
Coach Sewell's linksmen took second 
place in the league last season and 
should be capable of bettering their 
standing this season. 

Coach Bohannon is another who is 
blessed with an abundance of return- 
ing talent. Although the track team 
enters only limited competition, the 
return of Dave Dunbar, Vern Hottle, 
Larry Bush, and John Dabrow should 
give Bohannon a very fine nucleus on 
which to build. Track is definitely on 
the up-swing at ACJC this year, 
Bohannon believes.

Arkansas City 





No. 9 


Twenty-one junior college govern- 
ment students are meeting political 
party leaders in three Kansas counties 
this week, as they complete their 
share in a state-wide survey of activ- 
ities of county chairmen and vice 
chairmen of the Republican and Demo- 
otic parties. 

The survey project, undertaken by 
means of hour-long interviews, enalles 
political science students of 17 Kansas 
colleges and universities to find out 
h'nv parties work by sitting down at 
extended -interviews with the men and 
women who lead those parties. Part 
of the outcome hoped for by govern- 
ment teachers is an aroused interest 
in direct participation of students in 
partisan politics. Results of the sur- 
vey will be tabulated by the Kansas 
Citizenship Clearing House, with head- 
quarters in the Kansas Governmental 
Research Center at the University of 
Kansas, and will be made available to 
both political parties and to students 
of politics. 

The survey was approved by state 
chairmen of h^th major- parties. 

Arkansas City students have voiced 
enthusiasira over the project, having 
found political leaders anxious to talk 
to them and to share their experiences. 
Those who have completed their inter- 
views are unanimous in their opinion 
most that the experience has been 
one of the most meaningful of their 
college experiences. 

Arkansas City participants include: 
Clyde Steen, Jerry Anstihe. Paul B--11, 
Howard Clark, Marvin Daniel, Norman 
McBride, Roger Lyke, Kami Zerby, 
Kent Keahey, Richard R : neheart, Lee 
King, Chester Green, Leon Pe+ers, 
Mrs. Lucille McCreight, Ypuns?- Chull, 
Suzie Walker. Ruth Heck, Carolyn 
Dempsey, Sandra Woodard, and Dave 

Arkansas City was responsible for 
interviewing party leaders in Cowley, 
Chautauqua, and Elk counties. Ex- 
penses were borne by the Kansas 
Citizenship Clearing House, by means 
cf a grant from the Ford Foundation. 

Kay Winegarner Chosen 
KU Relays Queen 

Kay Winegarner, 1957 graduate and 
now a junior at Kansas University,

sas Relays which are to be held April 

The pretty 20-year old brown-haired 
beauty was chosen from among 20 
candidates after being interviewed by 
a panel of five Kansas University 

While attending junior college, she 
was head cheerleader, chosen Queen 
Alalah XXV, and was ranked third in 
the Miss Kansas contest which was 
held at Pratt. She was also elected 
football queen in 1955. 

Miss Winegarner is the daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Winegarner, of 
1504 North Eighth Street.

Tigerama has been here and is gone. 
Now that we have created an interest 
in the minds of the high school stu- 
dents that attended, we cannot let that 
interest die through a lack of exploit- 
ing the merits of the school. Now, as 
quickly as possible, the tours of the 
neighboring towns will add to and 
prolong that interest up until the 
time when the high school students 
are definitely decided on college edu- 


The basic purpose of Tigerama is 
to create an interest in prospective 
students so that they will choose 
ACJC. We cannot expect that interest 
to remain until next September with- 
out some type of reminder through 
the remaining days of school. It will 
be done. 


Embarassing Moments Department: 

At a fancy eatery in a nearby town, 
the manager is as cordial and gentle- 
manly as a man can possibly be. I 
squired my date there for dinner last 
Saturday night, along with two other 
couples. We were met at the door bv 
this same gentlemanly owner. He 
asked the ladies, each in turn, if they 
would like to check their coats. The 
sad and embarassing part of it was 
that my date wasn't wearing a coat, 
but one of the latest seasonal crea- 
tions — a sack. I don't know who was 
more embarrassed, my date or the 
owner, but he certainly can't be blam- 
ed, because it was a mistake that most 
any man would make. 

by Dtek &sb8er 

I think a great deal of appreciation 
should be shown Sharon Quick, Paul 
Longhofer, Norma Simons, Mary Cot- 
ter, Stan Graves, the football and cage 
teams, the language clubs, and every- 
one else who contributed to the tre- 
mendous success of Tigerama. 

After reserving a downstairs table 
especially for Everette Rochelle, he 
certainly didn't return the compliment 
when he made the downstairs dance 
floor so slick that I had the dubious 
honor of being the first person to fall 
flat on my back. I think I had taken 
two steps when the sky fell in. Other 
than that, I think the idea of tables 
in the clubrooms proved to he more 
successful than anyone had expected. 
It looks like a good idea and one that 
should be continued. 

And thanks are due to the Acton 
Manufacturing Company for the dona- 
tion of the expensive stryofoam used 
in doc-orations. 

In answer to the suggestion left 
for "As I See It." I'm sorry but par- 
ties at outside clubs are not school 
functions and cannot be advertised. 

Persons Interested in Summer 
(lasses Asked to Report Wants 

Students who are interestd in a 1958 
summer school session should report 
to the office the courses that are de- 
sired, Dean K. R. Galle said last week. 

It is important to do this early, 
since the college will offer only those 
subjects that have a large enough 
demand to support classes. Classes 
are held only in the mornings, and 
continue about eight weeks. 

Sdident NEA Decorates 
Office Display Case 

The Junior College Office display 
case took on an atmosphere of little 
red school house last week, as the 
Student NEA took charge of the dec- 
oration of the case to correlate with 
the theme of the 1958 Tigerama, 
"School Daze." 

On one side of the case, on a shelf, 
was a small replica of a school house, 
while on the other side were the text 
books of the education courses of the 
college. On the floor of the display 
case was information on the Student

A. C. Schools 
To Undergo KU 

The Arkansas City school system, in 
the latter part of October, 1959, will 
undergo a thorough and extensive 
survey of its facilities and practices, 
to evaluate its richness and profi- 
ciency, by persons from the School of 
Education at Kansas University. 

"Although a man often feels that he 
is in excellent health in every way, it 
is still advisable to go to a clinic and 
have a thorough examination by a 
specialist," said Dr. J. J. Vineyard in 
a recent letter to the Dean of the 
school at KU. This was said in rela- 
tion to the AC school system. Even 
though it is in good health the admin- 
istrators feel that it is wise to have a 
thorough checkup, by specialists. 

A survey of this sort is a rare thing, 
since most of the surveys are con- 
ducted on specialized items rather than 
of the whole system, Vineyard said. 

Key administrators of the Arkansas 
City system were at KU Tuesday to 
discuss with nine professors of the 
university, the scope of the educa- 
tional survey. 

Directions or guides for the survey 
will be proposed primarily from book- 
lets published by the state depart- 
ments of education of Iowa and Mis- 
souri, Dr. Vineyard said. Ideas from 
both publications and any others that 
seem applicable will be incorporated 
into the AC survey. 

At the Tuesday meeting, KU was 
asked to set up as a measuring stick, 
the very best and wisest objectives for 
the various divisions.

John C. Metcalf Speaks 
Of Peace in Juco Lyceum 

Hope for continued peace was giv- 
en by John C. Metcalf, Washington 
editor and diplomatic correspondent, 
in an address to Junior College stu- 
dents in the college auditorium, April 

"The Russians are not dull," said 
Metcalf, "but astute, tough negotiators 
who know exactly what they want. 
Put do not underestimate our own 
diplomatic corps. They are among the 
world's best. And Russia wants peace 
as much as we." 

Mr. Metcalf was the final speaker in 
the 1958 lyeeum series for the junior 

The annual junior college basketball 
rPyer's dinner-dance has been re- 
srheduled for May 3, due to the Hutch- 
inson Relays. 

Approximately 500 junior college 
students, visiting high school students, 
faculty, and guests enjoyed the hos- 
pitality of Ark City junior college at 
the 29th annual Tigerama, April 11, 
in the college academic building. 

As each guest entered, he or she 
was first greeted by the people most 
responsible for making Tigerama the 
success that it was. Among them was 
Sharon Quick who, more that any- 
one else, was responsible for the suc- 
cess of the dance. 

Many Persons Help 
But, instrumental as she was in the 
coordination of the dance, there are a 
great many other people without 
whose contributions of time and effort 
would have made it impossible for 
Tigerama to succeed the way it did. 
Such people as Paul Longhofer who 
handled the technical work, Norma 
Simons, in charge of decorations, the 
art work of Mary Cotter and Stan 
Graves, Coach Clint Webber, who vol- 
unteered the football team to do the 
heavy work, and the language clubs 
who made the table decorations. 

All of these individual and group 
efforts had to be combined into one 
group and, as always, someone had 
to be chosen as social chairman to see 
that everything was coordinated in 
order to save both time and effort. It 
was proven that the choice of Sharon 
Quick was a wise one. 

Fifty Hours of Effort 
Approximately 50 hours of group 
effort plus un-numbered hours of in- 
dividual work was spent in designing 
sets, setting up tables and chairs, 
decorating the auditorium and club 
rooms, and cleaning. 

All the work was on a voluntary 
basis. No one was made to do any- 
thing, and by the response of the 
workers, it was shown that there are 
students in the college who are inter- 
ested in the school and are willing to 
put forth an extra effort to establish 
a reputation and make the high school 
students aware of ACJC. Only by the 
success of the school, academically, 
socially, and athleticly, can we im- 
press on the minds of future students 
that the college does have something 
to offer, something that is needed 
more and more every day, a full, well- 
rounded education. 

Three Paint Murals 
In carrying out the theme of "School 
Daze" the auditorium was decorated 
to represent the business district of a 
college town with a theater as the 
central point, flanked by a dress shop 
and soda parlor, covering the east 
wall. The south wall was covered by 
a park scene and lamp post, and a 
classroom scene w^s used as a back- 

drop behind the stage. All tne sets 
were designed and painted by Sharon 
Quick, Mary Cotter, and Stan Graves. 

The tables in the punch rooms were 
decorated with small figurines de- 
picting the various college activities. 
The decorations were the work of the 
language clubs and the base materials 
were donated by the Acton Manu- 
facturing Company. 

The amplifying system used to pipe 
music to the downstairs dance floor 
was donated by Dick Stewart of the 
Osage Hotel and installed by Paul 

The project was under the guidance 
of Miss Henriteea Courtright, faculty 
advisor to the student council's social 
committee. Miss Mary Wilson, Miss 
Anne Hawley, Miss Evelyn Garner, 
and Miss Mary Margaret Williams di- 
rected specific activities. 

23 Printers 
Travel to 
Oklahoma City 

Twenty-three college ana high 
school printers accompanied by A. F. 
Buffo, instructor, journeyed to Okla- 
homa City, April 1, to visit printing 
firms there. 

Visited was the Semco Color Press, 
which prints school yearbooks from 
all over this area, including the "Ti- 
ger." Highlights of the Semco tour in- 
cluded viewing the manufacture of 
lithography plates, copy editing, vari- 
ous printing process, and in particu- 
lar a press that prints two colors at 

Several hours were spent at the 
Oklahoma-Times building. The group 
was amazed at this printing plant by 
the fact that when a roll of paper 
gets down to the size for changing, the 
press is never stopped, but is merely 
slowed down, and the new roll of pa- 
per is automatically glued to the pa- 
per going through the press. 

At the Wilkes Bookbinding and Silk 
Screen Plant the group found a shop 
which handles all kinds of bookbind- 
ing, book embossing, and silk screen 
printing. Machines of special interest 
were the sewing machine, which auto- 
matically sews the pages of a book 
together, and the embossing, press, 
which, using a die, embosses a design 
on the book covers. This shop also 
binds Semco's annual.

For John Gaddfs, Juco Gra'd 

Johnny' Gaddis, 1952 graduate and 
now coach of the Salem, Mo., high 
school, visited in Arkansas City over 
the Easter vacation. 

Louie Roberts, minister of one of 
the Salem churches had this to say 
about Gaddis in the Salem Newspaper. 
"The team's performance has been 
fascinating in many ways. One, the 
spirit, hustle, and the coach. Two, the 
improvement and outstanding effort 
on e- ch player's part. Third, the fine 
sportsm?nship displayed by every 
member of the teem. Fourth, the ex- 
cellent s f rat3(?y which was perfectly 
executed by the team." 

Gaddis compiled an excr %,1 -\ t record 
this year and brought wit' ' '■■"< one 
of his star basketball players, Marvin

Doctors Offer $600 
Scholarship to 
Ark City Teacher 

Much is heard these days of scholar- 
ships for students, but a recent an- 
nouncement is that one Arkansas City 
teacher will be the recipient of a $600 
scholarship offered by the Arkansas 
City Academy of Medicine. 

"Any teacher in Arkansas City 
Public Schools system is eligible to 
apply for this scholarship," Dr. W. 
G. Weston, chairman of the scholar- 
ship committee said. "The teachers 
applying for the scholarship must sub- 
mit to the Academy, a letter stating 
the course' of study they will follow, 
if awarded the money." 

Purpose of the offered scholarship 
is to assist the teacher in improving 
the quality of instruction given to 
Arkansas City students, and the com- 
mittee which makes the selection will 
be concerned with the values which 
will occur to students from the pro- 
posed study. 

This is . the first private offer for 
assistance of. this sort to Arkansas 
City teachers., A Board of Education 
bonus of $50. for summer school study 
was abandoned about 1932, during the 
depression days,

For the first time since the begin- 
ing of the assembly, a representative 
from a communist nation will be in at- 
tendance. Edward Kmiecik, first sec- 
retary in the Washington embassy of 
the Polish People's Republic, will rep- 
resent Communist Poland.

Anyone not aware of the reason f r 
the calm and serenity that has at last 
settled on the upper halls of ACJC 
will benefit from this explanath ii. 
Clint Webber has at last completed Un- 
necessary requirements to obtain his 
Master's degree. All that remained 
was the oral test which was to have 
been completed Monday afternoon. 

AC has had about every epidemic 
known to mankind so far this year, 
from losing ball games to sack dres- 
ses, but now we are confronted with 
one of a different nature — measles. 
Seems as though everyone and his dog 
has come down with the disease. Vic- 
tims so far have included Anita Belew, 
Patricia Belew, and Al Lockard. 

Speaking of Clint Webber, and we 

were a second ago, he has received 

word of the intention of two very fine 

high school football players to enroll in 

AC next year. One is Charles Topinka, 

a 6'1" quarterback from South Haven, 

and the other is 180 pound guard and 

half-back from Cedar. Vale, Martin 

Casebblt. These are two more added to 

the flock of fine material that Mr. 

Webber will have to work with come 

next fall. 


Did you ever notice that, if you 
have ever had an injury, especially a 
limp, that it always seems to hurt 
just a little more or your limp seems 
to be just a little more evident when 
someone is watching or inquiring 
about your injury? Clint Ryan found 
a tramp.line missing after executing 


bounding leaps, and has been reap- 
ing the sympathy of his admiring pub- 
lic ever since. 

If Rita Potacek-styled hair-do's 
should ever become a fad, the kitchen 
utensil industry should make a million 
from it. I understand, from reliable 
reports, that it is done with a egg- 
beater and a dull butcher knife.

Arks Cop 8 Firsts, 
But Still Lose to 
Quaker Thinclads 

Although placing first in eight of 
the fourteen events, the junior college 
Tigers allowed the Friends University 
track team to collect enough points in 
the lower places to take the dual meet, 
50-54%, at the Wichita West track, 
April 17. 

The Tigers were without the ser- 
vices of Mike Engle, one of their top 
sprinters, and Larry Jordan, shot put 
and discus man. It was felt by Coach 
Reece Bohannon that these two men 
would have given the Tigers enough 
additional points to pull the meet out 
for AC. 

In Dave Dunbar, the Tigers again 
produced the meet star with 17 % 
points. Dunbar placed first in the 100 
and 220-yard dashes and the broad 
jump, second in the 220 low hurdles, 
and third in the high jump. No other 
Tiger placed first in more than one 

Other than Dunbar, firsts were tak- 
en by Loren Beck in the 440-yard 
dash, Cecil Johns, half mile, D. J, 
Palmer in the shot put, Jan Chapman, 
javelin, and Charles Reid in the high 
jump. Seconds were taken by Johns 
) in the mile; Palmer in the discuss; 
Dunbar, 220-yard low hurdles; and 
I arry Bush in the high jump. Vern 
Hottle tied for second in the pole 
vault. Third place finishers were Beck 
in the 220, Clint Ryan in the half mile 
and broad jump, Everette Reeves in 
the 100-yard high hurdles, and Johns 
in the two-mile run. Dave Dunbar tied 
for third in the high jump. 


Morris j»nd DeLong Win 
Third and Fourth in 
Teen-Age Road-e-o 

A. J. Morris and Raymon Delong, 
freshmen, placed third and fourth in 
the annual Teen-Age Road-e-o which 
was held April 20, at Strother Field. 
the event was sponsored by the Junior 
Chamber of Commerce. 

Winner of the Road-e-o was Bill 
Ester, a junior in the local high school 
and second honors went to Leland 
Hamblin, who is also a student in the 
high school. 

Tests which the contestants com- 
peted in included, driving forward 50 
feet, backing up 50 feet, parallel park- 
ing, a serpentine forward and back- 
ward movement, driving in a half 
circle, and driving between stanchions. 

Representatives from senior col- 
leges,. Pittsburg State Teacher's Col- 
lege, Emporia State Teacher's College, 
Washburn University, and Kansas 
State College have been visiting the 
junior college, during the past several 
weeks, interviewing sophomore. 

Locker-room Coaches 
Save Mentors Headaches 

The success of any organization, 
scholastic, social or athletic, depends 
on every member of that organization. 
Ark City junior college has been for- 
tunate to have men of very high cal- 
iber to fill necessary positions in the 
schools' programs, yet be anonymous 
for general purposes. Three men, 
Fred Reimer, Mike Engel, and Dave 
Pearce are of this nature. While re- 
ceiving no plaudits of the crowd while 
the teams were winning, they still 
maintained a degree of standards that 
has led their coaches to think that 
they are almost indispensable. 

Fred Reimer, a sophomore from Lit- 
tle Falls, Minn, is a two-year letter- 
man as locker-room coach for Dan 
Kahler's Tiger Cagers. In high school, 
Fred was a three-year letter-man in 
basketball and proved his versatili-

ty as a stalwart on the hockey team. 
He chose Ark City Juco for his first 
two years of college after hearing of 
the highly rated math department. 
From ACJC, Fred intends to continue 
his education in engineering at either 
Kansas State or the Uuiversity of 

Dan Kahler had this to say of Fred's 
basketball work: "Any success we 
have had during the past two seasons 
should be shared equally by Fred and 
the players. The endless tasks he per- 
formed, of both mechanical and mor- 
ale-building nature, were carried out 
in true Tiger form." 

The other half of Mr. Kahler's loc- 
ker-room coaching staff is the happy 
freshman student council president 
from Wellington, Mike Engle. Mike 
has doubled as an outstanding football 
player and hardwood helper. This 
spring he is increasing his reputa- 
tion as one of the schools' outstand- 
ing athletes by proving his worth on 
the track team. In his year of appren- 
ticeship, Mike learned that to be a 
Kahler assistant meant working in 
many varying capacities. 

"During my tenure as coach here," 
Kahler said, "it has been my privilege 
to work with many locker-room 
coaches. Mike carried on this past sea- 
sen in the tradition of Tigerland, and 
it is my hope that he shall choose to 
letter in this position next year." 

Head football coach Clint Webber 
is reputed to be the only football coach 
known to have recruited a team man- 
ager. Dave Pearce is a sophomore 
from Salina, and has filled the posi- 
tion as football locker-room coach 
the two. years he has been at AC, 
maintaining the same position in col- 
lege that he held in high school, and 
under the same coach. 

Dave has not only proved his worth 
as a team manager, but has personally 
contributed to the school athletic pro- 
gram as a two-year letterman for 
Charlie Sewell's golf team. 

"It has been a pleasure to work 
with Dave the past two seasons. His 
position on the team will be one of 
the toughest gaps to fill in this sum- 
mer's recruiting", Webber said this

In going against the standards or 
some editorial writers, I would like 
to retract a statement I made in 
my column in the last issue. I said 
that it appeared as though Rita Po- 
tucek's hair-do was accomplished with 
kitchen implements. Rita reprimanded 
me thoroughly for the slanderous re- 
mark, so I would like to apologize 
and say that a butcher knife and egg 
beater could not have accomplished 
such an achievement. A meat grind- 
er must have been used to crea.e 
such agonizing results. 

Also in the last issue, 1 made r.ien- 
tion on the epidemic ol measles go- 
ing around. I would like to extend 
my condolences to those who now 
have or are expecting the dread dis- 
ease in the near future. I now know 
just how it feels. 

Summer vacation is almost here, 
and some of you will be ending the 
final phase of your academic educa- 
tion. Others will go on to other 
schools to further your education, 
and some will be back in ACJC next 
year. To those who will not be back, 
I would like to express thanks on 
behalf of the entire staff, for the help 
and cooperation afforded us during 
the past year. To those who will be 
back next year, I would like to ex- 
press the hope that we can depend on 
the same help and cooperation next 

* -■:■ * 

I would also like to extend my per- 
sonal thanks for the way this column 
has been accepted. A lot of people 
have not agreed with me on some 
items, but that is to be expected. I 
feel that it has accomplished some- 
thing since it has been criticized A" 
least that proves lhat it is being 
read. There has also been compl'- 
ments along with the criticisms. At 
any rate, like or dislike, I'll be ba k.

College Carpenters Complete House 

Sixth Juco Project |^f '\ 4 

Under L. A. Chaplin SpL'* -> 

Shown At Open House 

The Junior College carpentry class 
has completed construction of its five- 
room house project, and the house 
was auctioned to the highest bidder, 
May 17, after the public viewed it at 
open house. 

'Arkansas City is the only junior 
college in the state which has a 'live' 
carpentry class," L. A. Chaplin, car- 
pentry instructor, said last week. 
"Kansas City junior college, the only 
other one offering the course, does 
small repair work and limited addi- 
tions to existing buildings." 

This project marks the sixth such 
undertaking of this nature for the 
junior college. Besides building hous- 
es the classes have also built a two- 
car garage. 

Impressive to the visitor approach- 
ing the house are the shadDwvent ma- 
sonite siding and the completely 
weatherstripped windows with a new 
style screen wtiich can be removed 
with a flick of the wrist and stored 
just as easily. Redwood aneling is 
. eatured around the gables and the 
front door, and gives an interesting 
effect to the home. 

The l'.ving room has a guest closet 
at the entrance, a decorative stairstep 
shelf, and a what-not shelf on the 
wall. All doors inside the building are 
of mahogany, and the floors are all 
hardwood, except in the kitchen and 
bath, which are of inlaid linoleum. 
There will be a water-proof wall-cov- 
ering on the wall in the bathroom. 

Three bedrooms and the bath open 
onto a central hall, at the end of 
which is a linen closet. In the master 
bedroom, the closet is equipped with 
a sliding panel door, and has a light. 
The other two bedroom closets have 
conventional doors, but also have light 
fixtures in each closet. 

The kitchen has a double sink, 
built-ins around the wall, recessed 
lighting above the sink, and an elec- 
tric stove outlet. 

Off the kitchen is a utility room 
which houses the furnace for perim- 
eter heating, hot water heater, and 
facilities for installation of a wash- 
ing machine. 

All the plumbing is in and the only 
thing left to do is the installation of 
pipes for the furnace, which must be 
done after the house is sold and plac- 
ed upon its foundation. 

Tom Campbell, Buell Duncan, Gary 
Miller, Victor Morgan, Don Palmer, 
Delbert Palmer, Dennis Wilson, and 

Dave Daulton are second semester FINISHING TOUCHES TO THE INTERIOR of the house built under the 
members of the class. Alan Lockard direction of L. A. Chaplain are applied by Dave Daulton and Gary Miller, 
was enrolled during the first semester sophomores, and Tom Campbell, special student. The guest closet and dec- 
in the course. orative shelves are at the front entrance. 

WORKING ON THE EXTERIOR FINISH of the house built by college 
carpenters are three freshmen, Buell Duncan, Victor Morgan, and D. J. 
Palmer. The redwood siding around the front entrance is one of the striking 
features of the buildincr.

Juco Scholarship 
Is a Memorial 

Two new scholarships have been 
established for junior college stu- 
dents, Dean K. R. Galle announced 

A scholarship as a memorial to 
Jack Selan, '58, who died suddenly 
just after graduation, will be main- 
tained by members of the Selan fam- 
ily, Norman Ivprson, spokesman for 
the family, has informed Dean Galle. 

Jack, who was preparing for a 
teaching career, was the fourth of 
his immediate family to be graduated 
from the junior college. He had been 
preceeded by his mother, Mrs. Alyce 
Selan, his brother, J. A. Selan, Jr., 
and his sister, Mrs. Norman (Joline) 



Iverson. Jack was news editor of Ti- 
ger Tales in his freshman year and 
was a member of the Student NEA 
and of the college chorus. 

The Arkansas City chapter of the 
Anti-Thief Association is offering a 
college scholarship for the first time 
this year because the organization 
believes the scholarship fund "a good 
place to put extra money to use," in 
the words of C. D. Grant, ATA rep- 

Both scholarships are for $50 per 
year, and recipients will be named 
with the complete list of scholarship 
holders to be released soon.

Students Select Neckties, 
Explain Why In Rhetoric 

A huge display of men's ties, divid- 
ed into three groups, dominated the 
classroom when A. E. Maag's all-male 
fourth hour rhetoric class arrived 
Sept. 8. 

Each tie had been carefully select- 
ed and placed in its particular group. 
Group I consisted of a set of brightly 
colored, large figured ties which were 
out of date. A casual group of ties 
which if properly selected could be 
worn on various occasions made up 
Group II. Group III contained a few 
conservative ties which could be worn 
properly on any occasion. 

Each student was to select the 
most appropriate group and explain 
in writing why he chose it. The ma- 
jority of the students chose the third 
group, but a few chose group two, 
and several others selected the first 
group of ties. 

Purpose of the experiment was to 
give Mr. Maag an opportunity to be- 
come acquainted with each student's 
writing ability. It proved to be a suc- 
cessful experiment and attracted the 
attention of everyone passing room

Carpentry Class 
Starts On House 
Building Project 

The carpentry class, under the di- 
rection of L. A. Chaplin, has begun 
work on a house. Each year the class 
builds a house and sells it at a public 
auction at the end of the school year. 
Class members do all the work them- 

A bill of materials is drawn up and 
taken to lumberyards for estimates. 
After the bids are in and a company 
is awarded the contract for lumber, 
the class stakes out the house and 
begins work. The house this year will 
be built on East 5th avenue and 5th 
street behind the old A. C. Hide 
Company building. 

The house will be a modern 5-room 
bungalow. It will have three bed- 
rooms, a living room, kitchen, bath, 
and a dining area combined with the 
kitchen. It will have peremiter heat, 
sheet rock wall construction, mason- 
ite shadow vent siding, and white in- 
terlocking singles. 

Hardwood floors will be provided 
in all rooms except a linoleum floor 
in the kitchen. The house will be 
completely wired and complete in 
every detail except for the paint in- 
side and out. The house will be left 
this way to allow the future owner 
to paint the house the color he de- 
sires. The outside will be given a 
orime coat of paint. A breezeway will 
be built along the side of the house 
to allow the future owner to add a 
garage if he desires. 

This year's class is one of the larg- 
est classes in three years. Members 
are Richard Bowman, Leroy Byers, 
Ronald Gee, Buel Duncan, Bill Hol- 
lins, Gary Lowrie, John Murelio, 
Tom Lord, Jerry Smith, and Dennis

Mother, Daughter to Staff; 
Dauphin Subs for Iden 

A mother-daughter team fills two 
of the three college faculty vacancies 
created by resignations last spring. 
They are Mrs. Marie Ludwig and her 
daughter, Miss Rita Ludwig. The 
other teacher joining the staff is Ed- 
ward Dauphin, who is substituting for 
a short time until the return of Miss 
Gaye Iden from a European tour. 

Mrs. Ludwig received her Bachelor 
of Arts degree from Central State 
College, Edmond, Okla., and her Mas- 
ters degree from the University of 
Oklahoma. Mrs. Ludwig taught ai 
Hunter high school, near Enid, before 
coming to Arkansas City. 

Miss Rita Ludwig was graduated 
from Hunter high school and received 
her Bachelor of Fine Arts and her 

Masters degrees from the University 
of Oklahoma. She toured Europe with 
a drama group from the university 
and studied operas, drama, and ar- 
chitectural works. 

Mr. Daupin was graduated from 
the Arkansas City junior college in 
1937, later attended Kansas State 
for one year, and under the army 
specialized training program was sent 
to the University of Minnesota for 
one year. He took courses in engin- 
eering, which prepared him for work 
on the atomic bomb project. He is 
now employed by the Santa Fe. 

Miss Iden resigned last June, but 
consented to return for college classes 

Machine Shop Class Builds 
Flag Standard, Book Ends 

A flag standard for outside dis- 
play of the school flag has been com- 
pleted by the advanced machine shop 
class under the direction of Reece 
Bohannon, machine shop instructor. 
Members of the class who made the 
standard were Everette Reeves and 
Ralph Rush. 

The class is now building book 
ends carrying a Tiger design and the 
name of the school. The design was 
worked out by the class and sent to 
the art class in the high school to 
have clay molds made. From the 
clay mold the book ends will be cast. 

Back to School Party, 
Watermelon Feed Success 

"Our back to school party, held 
September 5, was very successful," 
Mike Engle, student council presi- 
dent, said in reviewing the event. 
"Attendance for a school party has 
never been better." 

Students and faculty members ate 
watermelon in the faculty's parking 
lot and then went to the college club 
rooms to dance, play ping-pong, and 
to get acquainted. Only one casualty 
occurred during the course of the eve- 
ning. A ping-pong table suffered three 
broken legs, all on the same side, 
when several boys leaned on it. 

Carl Holman, retired instructor, 
furnished the melons for the feed. 

Don Clark, '58, now in the Navy, 
visited the college last week while 
on a 14-day leave from his ship, the 
USS Ajax, in Pacific waters. 

Student Clubroom Has 
New Chairs, Tennis Tables 

Students are now using approxi- 
mately $250 worth of new recreation 
equipment in the student clubroom, 
including two ping-pong tables and 
ten armchairs. 

The armchairs are upholstered with 
plastic over steel frames in a variety 
of colors. The ping-pong tables were 
built by students in the woodwork- 
ing classes, under the direction of L. 
A. Chaplin. 

Mike Engel, student council presi- 
dent, has asked all students to ex- 
ercise control in hitting the edges of 
the new ping pong tables. 

College Radio Show 
To Be Aired by 
KSOK Thursdays 

The Junior College will be back on 
the air soon over KSOK. Each Thurs- 
day at 5:30 p. m., beginning Oct. 2, 
Ark City students will be heard. 

Dan Kahler's class in radio broad- 
casting has been studying techniques 
in giving commercials and planning 
programs, in preparation for the 15- 
minute weekly program. 

A practice program was taped 
Sept. 18 with a crew which included 
every class member. Patsi Boyer had 
the job of announcer; Jerry Towell 
gave sports predictions; Gloria Hardy 
gave some very informal gossip items; 
Neal Slack, Lawrence Baldwin, Ken- 
ny Dunbar, and Orman Wilson held 
a discussion; Don Englis gave a run- 
down of the activity schedule; and 
Loren Beck was interviewed by Joe 
Burnett. Marion Metts was timer, 
Howard Clark was technician, and 
John Smith was director. 

The class intends to give the ma- 
jority of the programs live. A few 
will have to be taped due to schedule 
conflicts. The theme of each broad- 
cast will pertain to activities of the 
college. An effort will be made to let 
each member of the class participate 
as often as possible and to include 
as many of the other students as pos- 

Student Parades 
Wanted At Arkalalah

Miami Norsemen 
Here To Open 
Home Season 

The Miami Norsemen, one of the 
top junior college teams in the na- 
tion, are the opponents of the Tigers, 
September 26, at Curry Field, in the 
first home game of the season. 

Last year the Golden Norsemen 
handed the Tigers a 19 to defeat 
at Miami. This year Ark City plays 
them on Bengal grounds. Last season 
the Miami coach was overheard say- 
ing that the Ark City Tigers had been 
one of the toughest teams on defense 
that he had encountered. 

This season the Bengals are well- 
fortified on the forward wall, and 
the backfield is capable of some fast 
maneuvering. The team as a whole 
could possibly hand the Norsemen 
some of their own medicine. 

The Arks travel to Tonkawa, on 
October 3, to continue an old rivalry 
with the Northern Oklahoma Junior 
College Mavericks. Last year the 
Mavericks edged the Tigers 14 to 13 
in one of the most exciting games of 
the season, at Ark City. 

Tonkawa was defeated 18 to 12 last 
week at Hutchinson. The Mavericks 
have reputation of improving with 
each game, so when the Arks travel 
southward, they will be expecting to 
encounter one of the roughest con- 
tests of the season. 

Grads Give Tigers 
Lesson in First 
Win Since 1951 

A surprising crew of grads broke 
the winning streak of the Bengal 
varsity with an rousing 20 to 7 vic- 
tory, September 8, in the annual 
Alumni game at Curry Field. Fum- 
ble-itis seemed the word to describe 
the varsity's game. 

Dave Dunbar, with two touchdowns 
and Ken Weber, with one, gave the 
grads their spark. Both are graduates 
of the 1957 class. Berklie Perico, 
1955, used his "educated toe" to round 
out the score at 20 to 0, by the end 
of the third quarter. 

A couple of convenient penalties 
pul the Tigers in scoring position. 
Clyde Steen passed from the Alum- 
ni's 20-yard marker to D. J. Palmer, 
behind the goal line and Fred Tre- 
nary added the extra point. 

This was the first win for the 
Alumni since September 1951. The 
game standings are six to three, in 
favor of the varsity. 

Alumni players included Tom Bos- 
si, Tony Tipton, Jay Woodard, Bill 
Gochis, Robin Thorpe, Bob Van 
Schuyver, Jim Kenny, Merle Atkins, 
Berklie Perico, Bill Meiers, Dave 
Dunbar, Ted Purvis, Tom Lord, Bill 
Grose, Don Neal, Bill Walker, Gene 
Burr, Harold Cox, John Hitchcock, 
Irvin Wahlenmaier, Harrold Mansell, 
Don Gregory, Gordon Fry, Dick Wat- 
son, Wes Jordan, Mel Richardson, 
and Ken Weber.

Bengals Ride Bronc 
Footballers for 
Victory No. 2 

Penalties and good hard football 
provided the Tigers with a 26 to 19 
victory over the Garden City Broncs, 
at Garden City, September 20, to 
give the Bengals a 2-0 conference 

Ark City, aided by a 15-yard pen- 
alty plus a big drive, scored in the 
first quarter on a sneak by Steen. 
Then with the score tied 7 to 7, Tre- 
nary ran 53 yards to score and boost 
the Ark lead. The third Tiger score 
was made by Steen from the 18-yard 
stripe, after apparently being boxed 
on the 25. Engel sneaked over for 
the final score after Trenary and 
Beck and another Garden City pen- 
alty set it up in the fourth quarter. 
Trenary kicked two points after 

Sutton, Pepper and Taber con- 
tributed most of the scoring punch 
for the Broncs. Sutton plowed most 
of the way on a sustained drive in 
the second quarter, scoring from the 
5-yard line, and set up the second 
tally in the third period by a 50-yard 
dash. Pepper scored then, and again 
in the final stanza with the aid of a 
mighty block by Taber. 

Ken Gann, Lyle Morris, Jack Moss, 
and Larry Burton did an excellent 
job of playing havoc with the Gar- 
den City backfield throughout the 
game. Bill Hollins and Loren Beck 
were continually in the game when 
the Tigers needed that extra bit of 

Band Employed For 
Student* Arkalalah Dance 

An added attraction for junior col- 
lege students has been planned for 
Arkalalah festivities this year. A 
live band, the Herb Jimmerson band, 
will play for a dance to be held at 
the American Legion Building, Octo- 
ber, 30. The dance is for the enter- 
tainment for junior college and senior 
high school students. 

Queen Alalah XXVII, a junior col- 
lege sophomore woman, will be 
crowned Friday evening, and a ball 
will be held in her honor. Herb Jim- 
merson's band will play for this dance 
also. The Ozark Jubilee will present 
a variety show at the auditorium- 
gymnasium Saturday evening, after 
which there will be a dance. There 
will also be a dance at the Armory 

Bengals Slaughter 
Cardinals 32-6 
In Loop Opener 

The Tigers learned the lesson giv- 
en by the Alumni, and defeated 
the Parsons Cardinals, September 12, 
at Parsons, by a score of 32 to 6, in 
their conference opener. 

After an early drive bogged down, 
John Carey intercepted a Parsons 
pass on the Tiger 25-yard line. Fred 
Trenary went to the 40-yard stripe, 
Karl Eason carried for 32 yards, Bill 
Hollins got 12 more yards, and then 
Clyde Steen, behind his forward wall 
of Lyle Morris and Jack Moss at 
guards and Roger Van Cleef, center, 
pulled a couple of quarterback sneaks 
and hit pay dirt. Trenary, booted the 
extra point. 

Ganji Blocks Punt 

Near the end of the second quar- 
ter, Parsons was forced to punt from 
their own 22-yard line, but big Ken 
Gann blocked the punt and lugged 
the ball to the Cardinals' 4-yard 
mark. A 5-yard penalty set the ball 
on the 9-yard line. Mike Engel hit a 
quarterback sneak to the 3>"-yard 
marker. Then Hollins, behind some 
outstanding blocking, went across for 
the score. Trenary missed the point 
try. Ark City led 13 to at the end of 
the first half. 

Parsons scored early in the second 
half, by recovering a bad pass from 
the Tiger center, on the Tigers' own 
24-yard line. Zymali passed to Nich- 
ols, who ran untouched into the end 

Near the end of the third, Trenary, 
Eason, and Hollins lugged the pigskin 
to the Parsons 12-yard line. Parsons 
was penalized to the 1-yard line, and 
on the first play of the fourth quar- 
ter, Steen used a quarterback sneak 
for the score. Hollins missed the extra 

Line Stars In Defense 

Trenary, Hollins and Eason, after a 
Card punt, brought the ball to Par- 
sons' 23-yard line, and Hollins scoot- 
ed to a score with 11 minutes and 43 
seconds left in the final period. Tre- 
nary's point after touchdown was 

Fred Archer recovered a fumbled 
Card hand-off on Parsons' 12-yard 
line. Charles Topinka passed to Ken 
Gann in the end zone, to close out 
the scoring. 

Tom Lord, Jerry Stover, Larry 
Burton and Lyle Morris led the line 
in holding the Cardinals to one first 
down and 35 yards rushing during the 
first half. 

The stair railings of ACJC have 
been getting quite a workout this 
week. The 15 girls who have been 
using them for sliding purposes in- 
stead of as a hand rail are not in 
their second childhood, but are just 
the exceedingly stiff and sore candi- 
dates for cheerleaders.

Anyone who was at the football 
game September 26 could not help 
but hear the Ark City Tiger Action 
Club. I was observing the game from 
just above, where the Tiger Action 
group was seated. I noticed that when 
our cheerleaders were catching a well- 
deserved rest, which didn't come very 
often, the members of the TAG were 
carrying on with cheers of their own, 
which showed that they were behind 
our team all the time. 

I assume that you have been on a 
football field or basketball court, at 
one time or another, but have you 
walked onto a playing field when you 
were alone, net a soul in the 
bleachers?* Try it sometime. It gives 
you a rather strange feeling. This 
could apply when our team is playing 
ar.d haven't any moral or vocal sup- 
port form the fans. Our team could 
feel left out or alone, his situation 
won't happen as long as we have pep 
elu s, like our Tiger Action Club. 

The Tiger Action Club showed that 
Friday evening, they were behind our 
team. Sure you can go to a sporting 
event ar.d just sit and watch the hap- 
penings, but if you want to sit and 
watch the game and not give vocal 
or moral support, go home and listen 
to fh^ game on your radio or watch it 
on y ur television. 

Naturally we all know that not 
everyone can get out in front of a 
c-owd ?nd lend cheers. So we need 
clubs like our TAC to form a nucleus 
rd boost everyone to their feet and 
give our teams the hacking that helps 

Many students sit and day dream of 
what they would like to be doing 
while they are in class. If you had one 
day to spend as you pleased, how 
would you do it? College students had 
a wide variety of answers for an in- 
quiring reporter this week: 

Ruth Steiner: "I would spend it in 
Stillwater. Jim Kittrell is there." 

Lynda_ Moore :_ "I have always 
wanted to be in Hawaii." 

Susan Beit: "Ha ha ha ha ha I 

know where I'd go " 

Fob Hunt: "That is none of your 

Beverly Gordon: "Go to Ponca 
'cause they have nice scenery." 

Elmer Cochran: "Probably fish or 
hunt- -might even break down and go 
to a movie." 

Ted Hollembeak: "I'd watch the 
World Series." 

Ben Johnson: "Go riding around if 
I had any gas." 

Becky Mathiasmeier: "I'd go to 
New York to attend the ballet classes." 

Mrs. Jerry Cooper: "SLEEP." 

Diane Rhinehart: "Go to Oberam- 
mergau, Germany in 1960 to see the 
Passion Play which is presented every 
10 years." 

Lorene Copeland: "Just get in a 
car and start drivng to I don't know 
where of course I need some mon- 
ey too." 

David Lord: "In a whole day? 

in-in-in-in a day? I don't know!"

Thai Student Wants 
To Explore USA 
Before Return Home 

"It's okay here, but home is still 
better," says Vibul Aunsnunta, new 
foreign exchange student from Bang- 
kok, Thailand, who appears to be just 
a little homesick after spending two 
months in the United States. Vibul 
flew to Washington, D. C. in August, 
and came to Arkansas City shortly 
before school started. It is the first 
time he has been so far away from 
his native land. 

Vibul attended high school in India 
under the British system, which he 
believes uses more detailed and diffi- 
cult procedures than those used here. 
He is taking basic subjects here in 
ACJC this semester, including French, 
accounting, rhetoric, and economics, 
with no particular major. However, 
when he continues his education at a 
university, he would like to follow in 
the footsteps of his father by major- 
ing in business administration. 

Before he goes home, about five or 
six years from now, he would like to 
visit the State of California, as he 
feels he would like it. He was im- 
pressed by the White House and the 
heat when he first arrived in the Uni- 
ted States. In his country, the tem- 
perature seldom goes above the low 

Twenty-three-year-old Vibul is the 
fifth cf nine sons and two daughters 
of a Bangkok banker. He impresses 
his instructors as being a serious 
student who has better command of 
English than is normally found in a 
student from the Far East studying in 
the United States for he first time. 

Aunsnunta h-3s already jumped into 
the swing of student activities, and is 
a newly elected officer of the French 

Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Stover are the 
narents of a baby boy born October 
?>. and weighing 7 pounds 12 ounces. 
He has been named Jerry Allen.

College credit may be offered in a 
mathematics course, taught by D. C. 
Stark, and a social science course, 
taught by Paul Blair. The actual

by students enrolling October 7. 

A "Great Books" discussion course 
will be offered under co-sponsorship 
of the city Library, the American As- 
sociation of University Women, and 
the college. 

"There will possibly be other 
courses if the demand is sufficient," 
said Dean K. R. Galle. Classes will 
run about 10 weeks with the credit 
classes somewhat longer. 

Five Annual Staff Members 
Atter.d Workshop at Joplin 

Five sleepy-eyed members of the 
junior college yearbook staff left at 
6 a.m. Wednesday to journey to Joplin, 
Mo., where they attended an all-day

El Dorado Here 
In Conference 
Home Opener 

In the first home conference stand, 
the Tigers take the field against the 
El Dorado Grizzlies tomorrow night. 
The Grizzlies boast a 2-2 record in 
season play. They have defeated Fort 
Scott 27 to 20, Parsons 13 to 6, and 
have been defeated by Dodge City 
16 to 7, and Coffeyville 20 to 7. Last 
year the Tigers gave the Grizzlies a 
thorough working over by defeating 
them 40 to at El Dorado. 

The Tigers journey to Coffeyville 
October 17 for a game with the Red 
Ravens. The Ravens have a record of 
one win and three losses. They have 
defeated El Dorado 20 to 7, and lost 
to Pratt 21 to 13, Hutchinson 19 to 7, 
and Tonkawa 14 to 0. Last year the 
Tigers won a thriller from them by a 
score of 12 to 7, at Arkansas City. 

Both El Dorado and Coffeyville are 
ancient rivals of Bengal athletes, and 
either is capable of smearing chances 
of the Arks to have a successful sea- 
son, even though it now appears that 
neither school has the sort of team 
this year which is normally expected. 
In such traditional rivalries the dope 
bucket is easily upset, and Tiger 
coaches are taking care that then- 
charges do not become over-confident. 

Forfeitures Place 
Tigers In Cellar; 
Pratt Into Lead 

Arkansas City rests in ninth place 
in the Kansas Public Junior Co lege 
Conference football race as result ot 
the decision of the college deans in 
their meeting at El Dorado Tuesday. 

The deans Wednesday confirmed the 
Arkansas City that a recently adopted 
rule of the KPJC had insufficient nub- 
licity, and was actually understood 
by no one in the conference 

The rule, adopted through blanket 
endorsement of the National Junior 
College Athletic Association code, 
provides that any player who has at- 
tended 21 davs of his third sernesW 
or f-rrth nuarter at a four-year col- 
lege is forever barred form further 
inHor college competition. Undor this 
rule Kenneth G-^n. Ark Citv end, 
Fred Tre->iry, Ark City back, and Jim 
Pino. Tndenendence back, were ruled 
inHi -ible last week. 

The deans Wednesday confirmed the 
rule and declared the Arkansas City 
wins over Parsons and Garden City 
and the Independence win over Gar- 

New Machinery Purchased 
For Machine Shop Classes 

Students in the machine shop 
classes are now using new and much 
needed equipment, including two new 
10-inch machine lathes and a new ver- 
tical mill. 

The lathes are used for cutting 
round objects and the milling machine 
is used for cutting flat sides and 
square objects and can be used for cut- 
ting teeth on gears. 


Ark City Comeback 
Drive Misses by 
Narrow Margin 

Ark City's Tigers showed the fans 
some of the finest football that they 
will ever see, September 26, at Curry 
Field, as the Miami Golden Norsemen 
edged the Tigers 13 to 12, after 
leading 13 to at the half. 

Loren Beck took a handoff from 
Clyde Steen from the 3-yard mark 
to tally the Tigers' first half score. 
Bill Hollins missed his extra point. 
Hollins scored for the Bengals late in 
the fourth quarter with a end sweep. 
The extra point would have meant a 
tie ball game, but the tension of the 
situation caused the center to make a 
bad pass, and Hollins missed the 
point. The ball game ended with a 
scoi'e which did not tell or show 
the true picture. 

The Bengals were carrying a handi- 
cap because two key men, Ken Gann 
and Fred Trenary, were declared in- 
eligible only the day before. 

Clyde Steen, Loren Beck and Bill 
Hollins were the work horses for the 
Tiger backfield and each did an ex- 
cellent job. Lyle Morris, Bnel Duncan, 
Jack Moss and Larry Burton were con- 
tinually in the Norsemen backfield 
accounting- for the Miami losses. 

Gus Classcock, Phil Baker, and Dave 
Russell were the sparkplugs for the 
Miar-i Norsemen. The Norsemen 
scored once in the first quarter with a 
pass by Glasscock to Baker, and the 
po ; nt after touchdown was missed. 
Phil Baker recovered a Ark City fum- 
ble end ran from (he 42-yard line to 
score. The extra point was good.

Tigers Tag 
Mavericks by 

PAT, 7-6 

The Junior College Tigers handed 
the Northern Oklahoma Junior College 
Mavericks a 7 to 6 defeat October 3, 
at Tonkawa. 

The first half ended scoreless, neith- 
er team making any serious threats. 
The Tiger defense looked weak at 
times in the first half, but managed to 
tighten when the Mavericks would 
start a long drive. 

Ark City received the second half 
kickoff and Jim Anderson returned to 
the mid-field stripe. From this point 
the Tigers made their threat and 
backed it up with Clyde Steen count- 
ing for Ark City's lone score. 

The extra point was one of the high- 
lights of the evening, Bill Hollins 
got in formation to attempt the kick. 
Jim Anderson was in position to hold, 
the ball was snapped to Anderson, 
who stood up and passed to Jack Moss, 
a flanker on the left side. Moss scooted 
across for the point. 

The Maverick tally was accounted 
for by Larry Shoemaker. Tonkawa 
dropped into extra point formation 
with hopes of tieing the game, but big 
Jack Neff changed their minds, by 
charging in and blocking the boot. 

This was the second win over the 
Mavericks since 1955, when the Tigers 
won 6 to 0. There was no game played 
in 1956. Tonkawa edged the Tigers 14 
to 13 in 1957. 

Date Chances For 

Women Students 

Are Better Than For Men 

What's the chance of getting a date 
with a fellow student, opposite sex, 
these days at Arkansas City? 

If you are an unattached female 
you're in clover. Single men out num- 
bes single women almost three to one. 
There are 218 men of this variety, 
and only 84 women who claim single 

If ycu are an unattached male you 
shou'd check on the pretty gal sitting 
next to you. Approximately one 
fourth of the fannies roaming the 
csmnus are married. The women won't 
have to t^ke it so easy, because there 
are only 25 married males.

their cars decorated with orange and 
black crepe paper, met in the city

Bright Memories Remain from 
Miss Iden's European Tour 

While other faculty members and 
the student body were sweating out 
those humid September days of the 
opening of the semester, Miss Gaye 
Iden, physical science instructor, was 
tripping merrily from one European 
capital to another. She returned to 
the United States October 14, and to 
her classroom October 20. Until her 
return, Edward Dauphin, a 1937 grad- 
uate of the junior college, substituted 
for her. 

Miss Iden, accompanied by her sis- 
ter, Mrs. Glee B. Iden, Albuquerque, 
New Mexico, embarked on the Queen 
Elizabeth from New York, July 30. 
With 18 other members of their tour- 
ing group, they visted eleven Euro- 
peon countries, Great Britain, France, 
Germany, Italy, Monaco, Switzer- 
land, Holland, Denmark, Belgium, 
Norway, and Sweden. The World Fair 
at Brussels drew particular attention 
of the group, but was only one of the 
many famous places they visted. 

During the two short months which 
they spent in Europe, they employed 
neaily Tvery kind of transportation. 
Travel was done by way of plane, 
boats, including gondolas, rail, includ- 
ing the Bleu Train which is among 
the most famous in the world, and 

Organ Tones Compete 
With Clubroom Juke Box 
As Musicians Swing Out 

Those deep tones of organ music, 
which have been penetrating class- 
room walls as successfully as the rock 
and roll of the clubroom juke box, 
have spread across the city as organ 
students began to use church organs 
as well as the college instrument for 
practice sessions. 

Nine students, under the direction 
of Mrs. Fostine Moncrief, get basic 
instruction on the college organ. They 
are Karen Keown, Marilyn Brooks, 
Joan Munson, Carolyn Foltz, Virginia 
Nellis. Judy Russll, Beverly T nncas- 
ter. Rnnita Harris, and David Lord. 

Three years ago, the Oldroyd family 
nresented the organ to Junior College 
in memory of Harry Oldroyd. Mr. 
Oldroyd was always interested in this 
college and it's musical activities. 

These organ lessons have eiven 
many students an opportunity to 
learn -whi^h they may not have bepn 
able to do without the college course. 

the Flying Scotchman also very fam- 
ous train, and two other interesting 
modes called, "Pus-Pus" and "Bus- 
Bus." The Pus-Pus is a small box- 
like affair attached to the front of a 
motor bike which accomodates two 
persons. A Bus-Bus is similar to a 
train. Persons are seated on each side 
of the little cars which have no tops, 
so as to give tourists every advantage 
of views. 

In Miss Iden's opinion, Norway has 
the most beautiful scenery of any 
country that she visted. She found 
Venice, Pompeii, and Sorrento most 
interesting. The breath-taking sight 
of the Blue Grotto on the Isle of Cap- 
ri, Versailles, and Monte Carlo are 
firmly imprinted in her mind, too. 

On the return trip, when their ship, 
the Queen Mary, was about a day and 
a half from New York, they encoun- 
teed the hurricane Helena. For 14 
hours they were tossed from side to 
side and made little progress. Miss 
Iden and her sister were among ap- 
proximately fifty of the 600 aboard 
who were still able to down their 
meals during the ordeal. 

Now safely at home, Miss Iden will 
spend her mornings teaching physics 
and physical science here at the col- 
lege. Her afternoons will be spent at 
home catching up on household duties, 
she says now.

Roger Beach, Ark City. 

In the drills so far this season the 
Tigers show plenty of fight and spir- 
it, and though Coach Kahler believes 
this squad is slower than last year's 
he expects them to make up for lack 
of speed by bustle. 


Archer Lost for 
Season; Hollins To 
Miss Dodge Game 

Two regular halfbacks, Bill Hol- 
li s and Fred Archer are on the in- 
jured li=t as the Arks prepare for 
Dodge City. Archer is out for the sea- 

Hollins was injured in the Coffey- 
ville game. His injury is what Co-ch 
Webber calls a "point bruise." This 
type of injury is located in the hip

io-s to the body 1 ut it makes move- 
ment very difficult and painful. 

Archer has a pelvis dislocation, this 
a recurrence cf the one that he recei- 
ved in the Parsons game, the first of 
the season. Fred was out for "bout a 
week that first time. It is understood 
t' at he will -be in the hospital for 
about a week, for the purpose of hold-

The cost is $2 each and each cheer- 
leader will have two, and are expected 
to add a let of color to the uniforms 
and the yells. 


Second Half Surge 
Buries Tigers 32-0 
At Coffeyville 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens blanked 
the Tigers 32 to 0, October 16, in a 
conference game at Coffeyville. The 
game was a hardfought contest the 
first two periods, but the Tigers could 
net ke?p up with the red hot Ravens 
during the last two periods. 

The Ravens first score came when 
they took advantage of a Tiger fum- 
ble on the Tiger 15 yard line and 
turned it nto a touchdown. Coffeyville 
fullback Ed Parker ran it to the 3- 
yard line and Jack Alford ran for the 
touchdown. The extra point failed. 

After the touchdown the Tigers held 
the Ravens down through the fine de- 
fensive wcrk of R^>ger Van Cleef, 
Jack Neff, Tom Lord, Lyle Morris, 
Larry Burton, Larry Magnus, Larry 
Jordan, Karl Eason, and Charles To- 
pinka. The score at the end of the first 
half remained 6-0. 

The Rnvens took the opening kick 
; n the second half and marched 65 
yards in eleven plays for their second 
touchdown. It was Dennis Denman, 
carrying the ball over. The extra point 
failed. Their next score came on a 
pass from Steele to Manuel. Gulley 
kicked the extra point. 

Halfway through the last period 
Don Colli er went around 1 is right end 
and scored the fourth Raven touch- 
do"- n. Cul'ey bailed on the extra point. 
Darryl Knight went over for the last 
to ch'lo*vn and Gulley connected for 
the extra point. 

The Tigers only threat came early 
ir the r econd neriod when they took 
over on the Toffeyville 41-yard line 
and ; d":n ed < f to th 12-yard line. 
The threat ended when the Tigers 
fumbled "ml th" Ravens took over 
on their 11-yard line. 

Tigers Are Hosts 
To Doge City, 
Pratt Beavers 

The Dodge City Conquistadors ven- 
ture into Tigerland, October 24. The 
Conqs will be carrying a 3-0-1 record 
which the Arks hope to blemish. 

Last year when the Tigers went to 
Dodge City, the game was called when 
there had been a light failure early in 
the fourth quarter. Dodge was leading 
13 to 6. The K.P.J.C.A. board ruled 
the game in Dodge City's favor. Our 
Tigers are going to be up for this 
game for that one reason. 

Dodge City has defeated El Dorado 
Garden City, and last week they bur- 
ied Hutchinson 42-12. They have one 
tie on their record and that was with 

The Pratt Beavers will be hosted 
by Ark City in the Tigers second con- 
secutive home game on October 30.

Bengals Defeated 
By El Dorado Bears 
In Conference Upset 

The Junior College Tigers were up- 
set by the El Dorado Grizzlies, Octo- 
ber 10, in a Kansas Juco Conference 
game, by a score of 13 to 0. 

With minutes to go in the second 
quarter, the Grizzlies had the ball on 
the Ark City 31-yard line and by a 
pass from Paul Schultz to Paul Blsz- 
ewich scored. The try for the extra 
point failed and the half ended at 6-0. 

Early in the third quarter the Griz- 
tooV over on the 29 and were pushed 
back to the 31, but a pass to Blaze- 
v/ich was good ar.d he ran for the 
touchdown. Mickey Nicoro came in 
and booted the ball for the extra 
point, making the score 13-0. 

The Tigers were never able to open 
up a definite threat after an initial 
quarter penetration to the El Dorado 

The Tiger defensive backfield was 
hurt in the second half, after halfback 
Jim Anderson had to be taken out 
because of an injury. 

The loss left the Tigers deeper in 
the conference cellar, with a record of 
no wins and three losses. El Dorado 
evened their standing at two wins and 
two losses.

day, December 22, with Herb Jimmer- 
son's band furnishing music," an- 
nounces Mary Cotter, student council 
social chairman. She will be in charge 
of decorating the college auditorium 
for the dance. Sharon Reynolds, pro- 
gram chairman will plan entertain- 
ment during the intermission. 

As in the past years, the home 
economics department, under the sun- 
ervision of Miss Evelyn Garner, will 
prepare refreshments. Carolyn Demp- 
sey has the duty of decorating the 
punch room. Other members of the 
social committee, Stan Graves, Judy 
Thomas, Anita Belew, Janice Carter, 
and Daryl Harp, will be assisting 
these people. 

The Christmas dance is the offir-M 
homecoming for the college as it is 
given in honor of alumni. Contrary to 
current belief and reports published 
elsewhere, the final football and bas- 
ketball games are not homecomings. 
In order to earn the title of home- 
coming, an event must be in honor of 
"lumni or alumni must participate in 
the event. The dance is under the 
sponsorship of the Student Council 

Classes To Be Dismissed 

At Noon for KSTA Meetings 

Classes will be dismissed at n^n 
Thursday for the remainder of the 
day pnd all day Friday. Reason for 
the vacation is that all teachers v ill 
be attending state teachers meeting; 
at Garden City, Hays, Hutchinson, 
Topeka, Kansas City, Independence, 
or Salina. 

Teachers have their choice of places 
to attend, but many of the teachers 
from Arkansas City will probably go 
to the meeting- at Hutchinson. M ny 
vocational instructors will go to spec- 
ial sessions of their affiliated grcup 
at Topeka.

Tiger Staff 
Orders 300 
Copies of Book 

Three hundred twenty-five copies of 
the 1959 Tiger have been ordered by 
the annual staff. Cash has been re- 
ceived for 200 and 75 people have 
made verbal orders. There will be a 
number of annuals sent to surround- 
ing schools also, A. E. Maag, sponsor, 
said Monday. 

Freshman and faculty pictures have 
been taken for their pages. There 
were 166 freshman pictures taken and 
there will possibly be a date set for 
those missed in the original schedule. 

Soph-more pictures will be taken 
soon after the Christmas holidays, 
but caps and gowns will be availabl" 
in fhe Junior College office for an" 
sophomore who wants a cap and gown 
picture for Christmas gifts. 

Mike Jones, Herb Beavers, and 
Stanley Graves have submitted cover 
designs. These have been sent to 
Oklahoma City for evaluations and 
the staff is waiting to see which of 
the designs is recommended by the 
engraving company. 

The first deadline is December 
when a minimum of 23 pages of copy 
must be sent in. The staff is n w con- 
centrating on getting copy ready for 
this section. 

Forward and diviscin pages are be- 
ing layed out and work is ^lso beino- 
started on the write-up for the organ- 
ization pages. A picture of the ch oo r- 
leaders has been taken for the activi- 
ties divisions page and a picture of 
the annual staff and student council 
picture will be taken soon. 

Approximately one third of the ads 
have been sold so the staff will have 
to put forth more effort on this phase, 
Mr. Maag said.

Council Money-Maker 
Is Virginia Kahler, 
Finance Chairman 

Virginia Kahler, sophomore, who was 
named finance chairman of the Stu- 
dent Council this year, is an employee 
of the Council as well as a key mem- 
ber. Her s' ccess in making money de- 
termines Council spending. One man 
and six girls are hired to help Vir- 
ginia operate the concession stard at 
football and basketball games. The 
high school FFA boys are employed 
to run the west-side concession stand 
from a truck at the football ,»ames. 
College students o ce ran the west 
stand, but it became too difficult to 
recruit them. 

Virginia orders the supply of re- 
freshments for each game, is respon- 
sible for hiring extra girls to help, 
and counts the money after each 

Fresh candy and gum, delicious can- 
died apples, cold pop, hot popcorn, 
yummy hot dogs, and hot coffee are 
available at the stand. Virginia comes 
about two hours before the game to 
prepare the refreshments. After the 
game she has the duty of staying un- 

til the place is cleaned up. She also 
goes on Saturday to the stand to do a 
thorough cleaning-up. 

"It requires a lot of responsibilty 
1 ut I really like the job," comments 
Virginia. "Once I went early and I 
smelled a real funny od"r so I started 
looking for it. As I walked arouivl 
after looking under things, a terrible 
smell hit me. I stopped suddenly and 
there, behind the pop cooler was a 
big dead rat. I had to pull all the 
cases out and get him. That just 
nearly killed me," said Virginia.

Bengals Meet 
Bucs, Dragons, 
In Final Games 

An end to Arkansas City's none-too 
successful 1958 grid season will come 
in the next two weeks, as the Tigers 
meet two conference foes, still in 
search of a loop win which will not 
turn into an administrative loss. 

The Tigers will host the Indepen- 
dence Pirates, November 7, at Curry 
Field in the last home game. 

The Pirates have a record for this 
year of one win and three losses, and 
one tie, with one game postponed. The 
Bucs upset the Tigers 12-6 at Inde- 
pendence last year. 

The Independence game of this 
year has been looked forward to by 
all, because of the crowning of the 
1958 football queen at the half-time 

The final game of this year will be 
November 14, when the Bengals tra- 
vel to Hutchinson to play the Blue 
Dragons. The Dragons have won two 
games and lost three and have tied 
one in conference play this year. The 
Tigers took the Blue Dragons 27-14 
last year at Ark City. 

The Pirates and Dragons were tied 
28-28, at the end of their tilt last week 
at Hutchinson. 


Two Quick Scores Let 
Congs Down Tigers 

The Dodge City Conqs downed the 
Tigers 21 to 12 in a well-played con- 
ference game, October 24, in Arkansas 
City. The Conqs were led by the fine 
running of fullback Joe Carroll and 
the passing of quarterback Dave Grif- 

r| "Vu> only unfortunate event of the 
tight contest came on the last play, 
when Dodge City's second-string 
quaterback, Loren Smart, had his left 
leg broken in a pile-up. 

The Tigers started the game with 
• Kiir ■ which took the ball to the 
Conq 20-yard line. The drive ended 
when qu'iter-back Gary Lowrie was 
rushed a"d threw wild and the Conqs 
recovered the I all. The wild b-sll was 
cj ught by defensive back Robert Wil- 
liams, who ran it back to the 46-yard 
line. Th° Conqs moved the ball down 
the fifld and scored their first touch- 
down on a 14-yard pass from Grif- 
fith to Jack Shutts. Brown kicked 
th' ex : va point. 

On the kickoff Jerry Jones was 
parted from the ball, and the Conqs 
I'nr'f'vreil on the 26-yard line. On the 
eighth play Headrick plunged over 

3 Beauties Tiger Football Queen Candidates 

The three finalists tor the 1958 Tiger football queen are left to right, Mary 
Cotter, Doris Reed, and Mary Engel. The queen will be revealed at a coronation 
ceremony at halftime of the Arkansas City-Independence game, November 8.

The coronation will be under the direction of Ruth Steiner, TAC president. 
(1'hotj by Eric Jacobsen.) 

and Brown kicked the extra point. 

The Tigers' first score came when 
they took over on the Conqs' 48-yard 
line and on the first play Jerry Jones 
threw a perfect pass to D. J. Palmer. 
A drive for the extra point by Roger 
Van Cleef failed. 

A final Dodge City score came early 
in the last period when Carroll ran the 
ball 48 yards for a touchdown. Brown 
concerted for the extra point. 

A come-back score for the Tigers 
came with less than a minute to play. 
The Arks took over on the Conqs' 9- 
yard lire and threw two quick passes 
which fell incomplete. On the third 
try Seen connected with D. J. Palmer 
for Ihe second Tiger counter. Van 
Cleef failed to score the extra point. 

Holl'ns Back to Action: 
Archer Out of Hospital 

Fred Archer, Tiger halfh^c'- who 
was hospitalized October 20-26, re- 
ported back to school October 27, af- 
ter he had been cleared by hospital 
; uthorities. He was informed by his 
doctor not to have any physical con- 
tact for the rest of the football season 
an ' for at least a month afterward. 

Bill Hollins, v ho was injured at Cof- 
feyville, was back in uniform for the 

Beavers Chew Up 
Arks in 40-0 Romp 

The Pratt Beavers dumped the Ark 
City Tigers last Thursday by a score 
of 40 to at Curry Field, in the worst 
Bengal defeat in 10 years. It might 
have been worse had not Bob Buzzi 
engineered some phenomenal kicks. 

Larry O'Hara was the "busy Bea- 
ver" for Pratt, scoring three touch- 
downs, one on a 81-yard pass inter- 
ception, o: e on a pass from Washing- 
ton for 50 yards, and the third on a 
40-yard jaunt through the center of 
the line. 

The Tigers showed flashes of power 
throughout the game, but could not 
consolidate them for a scoring punch. 
A 60-yard carry by Bruce Badley was 
nullified by a clipping penalty. 

The Arks led the Beavers in first 
downs by 13 to 7. Pratt led in overall 
rushing with 206 to 171 yards. Aeriel- 
ists seemed to describe the Pratt Bea- 
vers, for they hit through the air for 
a total of 141 yards, while the Tigers 
covered only 27 yards by the airways. 

Pratt contest and he will probably see 
a lot of action for the remainder of tho 
Tiger games.

Junior College 
acuity Ready 

For Evaluation 

Junior college faculty are busily 
involved this month in completing a 
self-evaluaticn survey of the college, 
in preparation for a visit by an evalu- 
ation board in February. 

A state board representing the state 
department of education, the senior 
colleges of the state, and the junior 
colleges, will visit the school during 
February and make an evaluation cf 
the college and its service. Using the 
self-survey as a guide they will ex- 
amine the activities of the junior col- 
lege, will talk to students and faculty 
members, and survey the equipment. 
Upon the basis of their findings they 
will make recommendations for im- 
provement. Faculty members are pre- 
paring a booklet for the use of this 
investigating team which includes the 
faculty's evaluation and description of 
the junior college's philosophy and 
purpose, its organization and admin- 
istration, student personnel services, 
curricular offerings, instruction, and 
general college atmosphere. 

The visiting team will check on gen- 
eral administrative procedures, faculty 
preparation, and the financial support. 
Students personnel activities to be in- 
vestigated include admissions policy, 
graduation requirements, and guidance 
and counselling procedures. The cur- 
riculum will be exaimed by a survey 
of the universities parallel, genera! 
education, vocational-technical, and 
adult education programs. 

Ext v a class activities and summer 
session programs will be included in 
this study. In examining instruction 
the commi f tee will survey library fa- 
cilities and their use, objectives of 
courses, instructional materials and 
equipment, and methods. 

The attitude of the student bidy 
will be examined in determining 
whether the spirit, atmosphere, and 
morale ton.' 3 of the school are con- 
ducive to efficient higher education.

Proposed College Drama Club 
ay Provide Thespian Triumphs 

A drama club for junior college 
students will be organized next week, 
if plans of Miss Rita Ludwig, speech 
and English instructor, mature. 

Since she feels that students should 
do most of the planning and organi- 
zing themselves, Miss Ludwig expects 
members of the new club to set their 
own goals at the first meeting, which 
will be held November 25, at 7:00 p.m. 
in room 104. 

Room For All Skills 

"Even though you do not have act- 
ing ability, there will be a large need 
for carpenters, scene painters and 
publicity workers," Miss Ludwig said. 
"All teachers interested in this type 
of work are also asked to attend." 
Persons who are interested but un- 
able to attend the meeting, should 
co ntact Miss Ludwig. 

Carpentry House 

iecfc !s Showing 
Steady Progress 

The annual house building project 
of the junior college carpenters is 
moving along with steady progress, 
according to L. A. Chaplin, instructor. 

"After the house gets to a certain 
stage the progress goes along in step", 
Mr. Chaplin said. Last week the class 
finished shingling the roof and now 
are ready to set the window frames 
and door frames. Work on the interior 
part of the house should start with- 
in the next week. 

"If everything goes well the exter- 
ior of the house will be finished by 
the Christmas holidays," said Mr. 

Earl Alcorn, freshman, has now 
jcined the carpentry staff. 

Language Clubs 

Learn Christmas Carols 

All language clubs of the junior 
college are involved in holiday plans, 
and each group is learning Christmas 
carols, Miss Anne Hawley, sponsor, 
revealed this week. 

The German Club is planning a 
Christmas party at the home of Mrs. 
Ldgar Moore early in December. 

The French Club is busy planning 
its annual Tweflth Night party which 
will he held early in January. German 
and Spanish clubs will be invited to 
the party. 

The Spanish Club ft their recent 
meeting heard a talk by Antoio Tina- 
jero, college student, whose homo is 
at Acapuleo, Mexico. 

If a large enough number of in- 
terested students attend this first 
meeting, play try-outs will be held 
soon, Miss Ludwig announced. 
Christmas Play Planned 

A one-act play for the Christmas 
assembly will be the first performance 
of the club. Numerous other plays 
will be given throughout the year to 
prepare the club for their final per- 
formance, which will be a 3-act play 
to be given in the spring. 

Miss Ludwig hopes to have a num- 
ber of speakers from the drama de- 
partments of larger schools come to 
talk to the club, and she also would 
like to organize trips for the club to 
see large university productions.

Tigers Drop 
Final Home Tilt 
To Independence 

After the Bengals had won a ding- 
dong first half battle, 20 to 13, the 
Independence Pirates added two touch- 
downs and two extra points in the 
second half to defeat Ark City 33 to 
20, last week, in the Tigers' last home 

Charles Topinka, halfback, was 
the big Tiger for Ark City, scoring 
in the later part of the first quarter 
and midway through the second quar- 
ter. Bill Hollin's extra point try 
missed the crossbars on the first at- 
tempt, but he tallied on the second. 

In the final minutes of the second 
quarter big Jack Moss, playing alert 
ball throughout the evening, intercep- 
ted a Pirate pitehout on Indepen- 
dence's own 17-yard mark and hust- 
led to paydirt for the Tigers' final 
score of the game. Hollin's point- 
after-touchdown kick was good, and 
the Arks held a one-touchdown lead 
at the half. 

Bob Morgan and Jack Stearns were 
the receivers of laurels for ihe Pirates, 
each scoring two touchdowns. After 
the Tigers had scored in the second 
quarter they kicked off to the Pirates. 
Morgan received the ball on his nine- 
yard line and raced down midfield for 
a tally, but it was called back due to 
a rule infraction. 

Ark City's end f). J. Palmer, played 
an excellent game with his pass re- 
ceiving from quarterbacks Clyde 
Steen, Mike Engel and Gary Lowery. 
Engel and Lowery alternated the 
signal-calling spot with Steen through- 
out the game, and showed the fnns 
some fine generalship on the field.

Cagers Meet 
Clarendon, Tex., 
In First Game 

A new sports season will come roar- 
ing in, November 28, when Coach Dan 
Kahlers' junior college Tigers will 
meet Clarendon, Tex., in an inter- 
sectional test for the season opener 
in the Auditorium-Gymnasium. 

Since the Tigers have never played 
Clarendon before, they are not sure 
what to expect, but the team is one of 
a group of strong Texas junior college 

The second inter-regional game of 
the season will be against the Cam- 
eron Aggies of Lawton Okla., Dec. 2 

The Aggies won sixth in the Nat- 
ional tournament last year and were 
rated first in regular season play by 
the NJCAA. The Aggies were unde- 
feated during the regular season and 
won 25 straight going into the nation- 
al at Hutchinson. At the end of the 
season they had a mark of 27-2. 

The Tigers did not play the Aggies 
last year, but according to Coach Kah- 
ler they are the only team that has 
won from the Tigers more than the 
Bengals have won. 

Coach Kahler had this to say about 
this years' Tiger squad: 

"It is the greenest team we have 
had sirce I have been coaching here. 
We will make many mistakes dining 
the early part of the year, but I be- 
live it will be the type of team that 
will improve greatly down the strecth, 
unless we have serious im'uries or any 
unfortunate happenings." 

Only four letterman have returned

Athletes Stop Shivering; 
New Heating Unit Installed 
In Auditorium-Gymnasium 

Basketball players and students in 
gym classes in the auditorium-gym- 
nasium now have the luxury of both 
hot and cold water. Since the start 
of school they have had no hot water 
in the shower rooms, because of the 
absence of the heating unit. 

The new heating unit was finally 
finished November 20, to the relief 
of both the gym classes and the 
health classes, who had to wear their 
coats to class on cold days. 

The old furnace was taken out 
during the summer and the replace- 
ment was to be installed by Septem- 
ber 15. Due to unforseen difficulties, 
the boiler did not arrive on time, and 
then to lengthen the delay, masonry 
of the whole northeast corner of the 
building had to be removed and the 
boiler inched through the hole.

Can We QindtUe. *7^«e o.ff GlvUltmal? 

Silent night, holy night can be 
heard everywhere. The season of 
Christmas is about here. Before we 
get into the swing of the season let's 
stop and analize what Christmas is 

Too many people think the only 
meaning of Christmas is the receiv- 
ing of gifts and having a good time. 
AS long as they receive a gift from 
mom and dad and all the gang they are 
satisfied, that this is the true meaning 
of Christmas. Although gifts are as- 
sociated with the true meaning of 
Christmas they should follow the rule 
that "It is more blessed to give than 
to receive." If everyone would follow 
this they would get a clearer picture 
of what Christmas is suppose to 

Although Christmas is a season to 
be merry and gay we should not for- 
get what Christmas is about. It is the 
birthday of our Lord. Manv years 
ago in the present country of Israel. 
He was loin in the town of Beth- 
lehem in a manger. The shepards left 
tlvir flocks tn pay homage to the 
Christ child. Three kings came from 
p distant land to nay homage and to 
bring gifts to the newborn child. 
Christmas was set aside to observe 
this anniversary. 

The irrap Christmas comes from 
Ch?- ; =t'* Ma<s. the mass said in honor 
of His birth. Many customs are fol- 
lowed in many countries but the 
meaning behind them all are the same. 

Before w> iurnt) head first into the 
activities of Christmas, we might stop 
to think a'">out the true meaning be- 
hind Christmas and not just the fun 
a-vl merrymaking that one has at

Tough Eggs, Burnt Bacon Can 
Flunk Those Home Ec Students 

"There is even a proper way to 
cook eggs and bacon," says Miss 
Evelyn Garner, foods teacher, and she 
has succeeded in teaching her six col- 
lege pupils, Virginia Nellis, Lana 
Turner, Barbara Green, Norma Jean 
Otipoby, Barbara Wapp, and Geneva 
Wallace, that eggs must be cooked at 
a low temperature to keep them ten- 
der and that bacon should merely be 
fried to the "crisp" stage, not burnt. 

Miss Garner places emphasis on 
scientific principles of food selection, 
preparation, and serving, other than 
the old-fashioned method of "a pinch 
of this and handful of that," or "let 
it cook "till you smell it." In her 
opinion, cookery is a scientific art. 
One must stick to the learning of the 
proven scientific methods if he is to 
learn the art properly. 

On the ether hand, Miss Garner is 
not onposed to discovering new 
methods and ways of doing things. 

In fact, she promotes this idea by 
letting her student conduct experi- 
ments in class. Last week, the girls 
removed two pies from the freezer 
which were placed there nine months 
ago by 1957 students. One pie, pump- 
kin, had been baked before being 
frozen and tasted very much the same 
as a fresh one. The other, an apple 
pie, had to be baked. They found 
that it also tasted very much the same 
as a fresh one, although the apples 
had darkened slightly. 

The text book being used by the 
class recommends that foods be left 
in the freezer only two or three 
months to preserve flavor, but this 
experiment proved to the girls that 
some foods may be frozen for longer 
lengths of time with no deteriation in 
flavor quality. "A vistor might hastily 
misjudge our methods and results as 
they do not always come out per-

Library, Office 

Eight junior college students have 
been hired to work in the library and 
in the office to assist with the regular 
employee duties. 

Delma Pearson, Sandra Rankin, 
Doris Reed, Ruth Ann Greenwood, 
sophomores; and Joan Munson and 
Margaret Day, freshman, are work- 
ing in the college library. 

They are getting new books ready 
to put on the shelves for students to 
check out. Delma is writing up the 
information and the other girls are 
typing catalogue cards. All of the 
girls check out books and help stu- 
dents find information they need. Each 
girl works approximately one hour 
a day. 

Miss Anne Hawley, language in- 
structor, and Miss Evelyn Garner, 
home economics instructor, are in 
charge of the library. 

Lorene Copeland, sophomore, and 
Carolyn Foltz, freshman, are working 
in the college office. Both of them 
typed up enrollment cards during 
the two weeks of enrollment before 
school started. Now Lorene marks 
absences, assembly attendance, and 
types transcripts. Carolyn is typing 
grade cards for the semester marks 
and some transcripts. 

Dean K. R. Galle and Mrs. Ruth 
Gillock, college secretary, supervise 
the office girls. 

Rev. Enz Delivers 
Thanksgiving Talk 

Rev. Harold Enz, pastor of the 
Central Christian Church, delivered 
a Thanksgiving sermonette to col- 
legians in the holiday assembly Nov. 
26. His talk was based on scriptures 
read by Mrs. Betty Reynolds, sopho- 

Mrs. Fostine Moncrief played the 
organ as students entered the as- 
sembly room in an attitude of rev- 
erence. Groun singing of the hymn, 
"We Gather Together" was followed 
hv a Thanksgiving prayer offered by 
Kelsey Day, biological science in- 

A snecial feature of the assembly 
was the sinking of two numbers by 
the college choir The songs were "A 
Hymn for Thanksgiving" and "I 
Waited for the Lord", for which 
Elaine Coffelt, sophomore, and Mar- 
garet Dav, freshman, were soloists. 
Karen Keown, sophomore, accom- 
panied the group on the organ. 

Those who see students coming 
down the hall with paint brushes, 
charcoal, erasers, oil paints, and paper 
stacked in their arms — may be sure 
such persons are enrolled in art. Oil 
painting, freehand drawing, and water 
color are being taught by Miss Vera 

Enrolled in oil painting are Judy 
Thomas, freshman, Stan Graves, Beth 
McDowell, Loren Beck, sophomores. 
They have been painting landscapes 
and still-life in oils. 

Freehand drawing students are 
Becky Mathiasmeier, Mike Jones,

Sock Hop Attended 
By Juco and High

The sock hop which the Distribu-

judging from the very full Juco audi- 
torium where it was held. Approxi- 
mately 200 Juco and high school stu- 
dents attended. 

A number of contests was held and 
the winners all received prizes. These 
winners included Pam Parmley and 
John Washburn, who received a cross 
and a tie for winning the jitterbug- 
contest; Barbara Sweely and Eddie 
Loomis, who received a crystal neck- 
lace and a tie for winning the slow 
dance contest. Carolyn Becker won a 
mat -hing pin and bracelet set for 
having the most decorated socks. 

The couple who won the most love- 
sick couple title was Sharon Reynolds 
and Steve Wright for which they re- 
ceived a jar of dill pickles. They also 
received prizes of a pen and billfold. 
Runners-up were Mickie Madden and 
Dean McCann, who received a pair of 
ear rings and a car ti*ay. Applause

Hutchins, Rundle, 
Student Managers, 
Were Headache Savers 

Two unsung heroes of the recent 
grid season this year were Ray Run- 
dle and Larryl Hutchins, the student 
managers. People who were associ- 
ated with these two would classify 
them as indispensable in their ser- 
vices for the football team. 

When a player needed laces for his 
pads or shoes, chin straps for a hel- 
met or cleats for his shoes, he would 
see Ray Rundle, the locker room man- 
ager. Rundle was also in charge or 
responsible for the valuables of the 
players, things such as watches, rings 
and wallets. Rundle saw to it that 
each player was properply attired be- 
fore practice or a game. 

Larryl Hutchins acted as trainer 
for the Tigers this year. When a 
player had a minor cut, jammed fin- 
ger, or a bruise of any sort, "Hutch" 
was the man to see for assistance. 
Hutchins made sure each and every 
player was taken care of as far as 
minor medical attention. 

Coach Clint Webber said last week 
that "Hutch" and Ray had saved 
numerous headaches by being John- 
nys-on-th-spot at the pactice sessions 
and during the games. When he 
needed to observe the playing field, 
he always knew everything would 
be well taken care of on the sidelines 
or in the locker room.

fectly. That is because we do not al- 
ways strive for perfection. Some pro- 
jects are aimed at seeing what certain 
changes in proportions and ingre- 
dients will produce," Miss Garner 

Another piece of knowledge that 
the girls feel is a very nice thing to 
have is how to substitute one ingre- 
dient for another and produce the 
same flavor. They say this would be 
very helpful in case one should not 
have an ingredient called for and 
could not get it easily. 

The class has studied the principles 
of preparing salads, vegetables, fruits, 
and milk products. This week they are 
preparing refreshments for the 
Christmas dance. After Christmas, 
the girls will begin to prepare com- 
plete meals and study meats.

The annual football banquet given 
to the football team by the Lions 
Club and the annual basketball ban- 
quet, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club, 
are to be combined into an all-sport 
banquet which is to be g'iven sometime 
during the spring term, club members 
informed school officials last week. 

The actual date and details have 
yet to be determined, and will be an- 
nounced arrangements. As has been 
the practice in the past, the all-sports 
banquet will be open to the public. 
Each purchaser of a ticket will be

Topinka, Davis, Captains 
For 1059 Football Season; 
Cary, Palmer for 1958 

Charles Topinka, freshman half- 
hack, rind Jackie D)jvis, freshman 
fullback-linebacker, have been chosen 
as team captains for the 1959 foot- 
ball season by the squad. 

This is Ihe first time in recent 
years for the captains to be chosen 
before the season begins and the 
purpose is to provide help for Coach 
Clint We 1 hr>r in recruiting new boys 
for the 1959 squad. 

According to Coach Webber the 
team made a very good choice, be- 
cause both boys are intelligent and 
like the game of football. They can 
t- I-p th'-' responsibility and leader- 
shin of the team and make the de- 
cisions fbout penalties and other

Conference Assists Plans for 
Juco Reading Program 

Miss Henrietta Couitright, mathe- 
matics instructor, represented the jun- 
ior college at the eighth annual meet- 
ing' of the National Reading Confer- 
ence, December 4-6 at TCU, Fort 
Worth, Tex. 

Purpose of Miss Couvtright's visit 
was to learn how to run two new 
reading machines, the controlled re d'r 
end the Tachistoscope, machines 
which the college now has purchased. 

The controlled reader is a machine 
which improves the reading ability 
of students by showing a sentence 
or a part of a sentence on a lighted 
dial. This machine increases the eye 
span and allows the reader to see 
and comprehend a sentence at one 
time instead of one word. 

The Tachistoscope is used for the 
purpose of increasing the reading 
speed and increases the vocabulary. 

The first day of the conference was 
given over to how to start a college 

reading class, the subject in which 
Miss Courtright was the most inter- 

One day was spent on reading im- 
provement as a counseling procedure 
and reports on many kinds of research 
that has been made on the machine. 

Pvliss Courtright saw the TCU read- 
ing labia tory, which consisted of a 
whole roomful of reading machines. 

"I was thrilled to see the great pos- 
sibilities in the reading machines," 
Miss Courtright reported. "I believe 
the conference was worth while and 
that what I learned will enable me to 
assist much more in our own reading 
improvement pogram." 

Most people are bothered by those 
passages of scripture they do not 
understand, but I have always noticed 
that the passages that bother me are 
those I do understand. — Mark Twain

Second Semester 
Enrollment Starts 
For All Students 

"Now is the time to register for 
the second semester", Dean Galle re- 

This year a new plan will Le follow- 
ed. All freshmen are to report to 
their advisers for registration, and 
then check this with the office. Soph- 
omores and any other students must 
go directly to the office for enrollment. 

New students entering college must 
report to the office for registration. 
From 30 to 40 new students are ex- 
pected to enroll, Mr. Gialle said. The 
number of new students is. an estimate 
from experience of past years. 

Announcements will be posted on 
the bulletin board to tell the names 
of the freshmen advisers and the time 
of the enrollment. 

New Ping Pong Tables in Use 

The student clubrooms have now 
acquired two new ping pong tables, 
which were ordered at the first of 
the year. The tables were made by 
L. A. Chaplin's woodworking classes. 

Plastic Protectors To Be 
Sold for 1959 Yearbook 

The cover for the 1959 Tiger school 
yearbook will be basically white, and 
in order to protect them, plastic pro- 
tectors will be sold, A. E. Maag, spon- 
sor, announced Monday. 

The protectors will sell at 20 cents 
each. A sample protector is being dis- 
played in the office window on a 1955 
yearbook, which has a similar cover. 

Students may purchase their pro- 
tectors during the week of January 
2G to January 30. Orders must be in 
by January 30, Maag said. 

Nine Students May Graduate 
At End of First Semester 

Dean K. R. Galle has revealed that 
nine junior college students will have 
completed graduation requirements 
at the end of first semester if their 
grades are satisfactory. 

They are Mrs. Lavena Bittle, Ken- 
neth Gann, Mrs. Doris Gregory, 
Young Chull Kim, Mrs. Lucille Mc- 
Creight, Lvle Morris, Fred Trenarv, 
Jerry Towell, and Mrs. Patty Bazil. 
They will be awarded diplomas at the 
spring graduation excercises. 

Only Young Chull Kim is certain 
concerning plans for next semester. 
He has been admitted at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, and will leave for 
College Park soon after final exams. 

Semester Finals for All Courses 
Will Be January 20-23 

Semester finals for all courses will 
begin January 20 and will continue 
through January 23, Dean K. R. Galle 
has announced. 

During this week classes will not 
meet as usual, the time being used 
exciT-ively for examinations. A special 
schedule is being prepared now, and 
will be posted on the bulletin board. 
Copies of the schedule will be made 
available to students prior to final 

Language Clubs 
Will Celebrate 
French Festival 

"La Fete des Rois", French "Fes- 
tival of the Kings," will be celebrated 
January 14 by members of the college 
language clubs. A gala dinner is to 
be served in the Cadet Room of the 
Osage Hotel Wednesday evening. It 
is the junior college French Club's 
annual Twelfth Night party. 

A traditional highlight of the fes- 
tival is finding of a bean in the des- 
sert cake by one guest to designate 
him or her as king or queen of the 
party. After the finder of the bean 
has chosen a reigning mate, the 
couple may give orders to be obeyed 
by those present. In this manner they 
will act as master and mistress of 
ceremonies for the evenings program. 

Each time the royal couple drinks, 
everyone present must drink also and 
shout in French or in the language he 
is studying, "The king drinks!" or 
"The queen drinks!" "Woe be to those 
who fail to do so, for they receive 
black marks on their faces," say the 
party planners. 

German and Spanish club members 
are guests of the French clubs as this 
is a French holiday. In France, the 
festival takes place on the twelfth 
night of Christmas which is January 
6. It is a celebration of the coming of 
the three wisemen. Other guests in- 
vited are Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Vineyard 
and Dean and Mrs. K. R. Galle. 

Vibul Aunsnunta who has the job 
of program chairman as he is vice 
president of the French club, must 
prepare at least a few persons for the 
king to call upon, but everyone has 
been warned by sponsor, Miss Anne 
Hawley, to be ready with "some- 
thing". Sharla Bliss, Margaret Day, 
and Karol Lack compose Aunsnunta's 

The star of Bethlehem which led 
the wise men has resulted in a theme 
of stars being used for the decora- 
tions. It will probably be used again 
this year by Sharon Reynolds, Twila 
Gilmore and Donna Apperson, who 
are in charge of decorations.

Research Paper Topics Vary 

From Obesity to Pope Pious 

Research papers on everything from 
obesity to Pope Pious were handed in 
just before the Christmas vacation 
began. For six weeks or more before 
the set date of completion, students of 
Kelsey Dey, biological science instruc- 
tor and Dan Kahler and Miss Rita 
Lr.dwig, rhetoric instructors, labored 
note cards, outlines, and preliminary 
drafts. But it seems that many worked 
carefully to save the hardest part 
until the last. The weekend before the 
Monday on which the papers were due 
saw a great number of "resei^eh^rs" 
I urning midnight and even all-night 

Students were at liberty in choosing 
a subject en which to write. Teachers 
found that the subjects were more 
timr'p than not, connected in some way 
with the students' future professions. 
Mr. Day's health and hygiene class ;~ 
was required to write about disease 

or something else pertaining to health. 
He provided >a. list of suggestions 
which included "The Art of Embalm- 
ing." There is still some controversy 
f.mong his pupils as to what this 
could possibly have to do with health. 

Mary, many hours have been spent 
in the Public Library, the colleie 
library, and a few in the senior hi<?h 
school library. According to students 
a vote of thanks goes to the librarians 
who were always ready to help. These 
kird ladies "dug up" material on tor- 
nr.does, presidents' wives, cancer, for- 
eign countries and cities, the Statue

Conqs, Beavers, 
Broncs, Aggies 
On Tiger List 

Basketball gets down to serious bus- 
iness in the next two weeks, as the 
Kahlermen begin the defense of the 
conference title they have held for six 
straight seasons. 

The Tigers venture first into Okla- 
homa January 12 for a rematch with 
the Cameron Aggies. The Aggies were 
given a second place rating in a nat-

revenge for their 37 to 47 loss in the 
first meeting of the two clubs. 

On January 16 the Dodge City Conqs

conference opener. In last year's con- 
test the Tigers were victorious over 
the Conqs on their home court 68 to 
64, but lost at Dodge, 53 to 68. 

The following night the Tigers will 
host the Garden City Broncs. The 
Tigers defeated the Broncs 61 to 57 
and 75 to 70 in last year's games, 
home and away, respectively. 

The Tigers travel to Pratt on Janu- 
ary 20 for their conference road open-

the surprise 65 to 71 loss the Beavers 
handed them in last year's game at 

Sophomores Meet to Discuss 
Graduation, Be Measured 

a special meeting for all sopho- 
mores was held December 19 to dis- 
cuss details of graduation. Dea" K. 
R. Galle exulained requirements for

Tigers Take Third 
In Moberly Tourney 

The Arkansas City Tigers took 
third place, December 18-19, in the 
Moberly Invitational Tournament. 

The Tyler team from Tyler Tex. 
junior college, took the Bengals 56-49 
in a rally during the last ten minutes, 
after a closely played opener. 

In their hottest game of the year, 
the Tigers defeated Moberly, in the 
third place play off, 70-53. The Tigers 
led most of the way. J. D. Smith was 
high point man for the game and the 
highest score made by a Tiger this 
far in the season. Marvin Adams put 
18 points through the loop for his 
high of the campaign. Others making 
the trip were George Aleshire, Stan 
Graves, Hank Heidebrecht, Jim Lewis, 
Bob Liming, Floyd Perry, George

Barrage by Graves, 
Tight Defense, Give 
Victory over Ravens 

A 26-point bombardment by sopho- 
more forward Stan Graves led the 
Junior College Tigers to a smashing 
victory over the Coft'eyville Red 
Ravens, January 6, by a score of 66 
to 42. 

The Tigers started the game with 
three consecutive field gcals, while 
the Ravens tried to match them with 
free throws. After the fast start, 
the Bengals kept their lead and were 
never behind in the remainder of the 
game. At 10-minute intervals the scor- 
ing was thus:13-4. 34-16, and 49-25. 

Jim Lewis and Floyd Perry, defen- 
sive forwards, held Raven scoring ace 
Vencent Knight down to 14 points. 

Graves' 26 points was his hottest 
srawe of the season. Other scorers for 
the Bengals were J. D. Smith and Mar- 
vin Adams, both 8, Jim I ewis 7, Hank 
Heidebrecht 13, Floyd Perry 4, and 
George Rhodes 1.

In 63-38 Win 

The junior college Tigers wrsrvre^ 
up victory number five in the sixth an- 
nual game with the Alumni, Decem-

of 63 to 38. 

The Bengals opened the game with

for the Tigers. Then Big Jim Reed 
scored for the Alumni and J. C. 
Louderback tallied one point from the 
free line. The first few minutes of the 
game saw the Varsity leading 6 to 3. 

The Arks continued their seige on 
the Alumni throughout the remainder 
of the first half. By half-time the 
Tigers lead by a score of 28 to 11 
over the hapless Grads. The second 
half was very much the same story, 
with the youngsters showing their 
wares to the old-timers. In the last 
few minutes of the game the Alumni 
came alive to thrill the fans ias they 
seemed to simply aim the ball in the 
direction of the basket and they auto- 
matically scored. r 

The Tiger reserves added insult by 
defeating the Alumni reservists in 
the preliminary tilt by a score of 55 
to 46. Bill Walker was the top Tiger 
for the reserves with 11, and Ken Gil-

Stuco President 

Three freshmen have filed declara- 
tions of intent to become candidates 
for Student Council president for the 
1959 term. They are John Brewer, 
David Lord, and John Wilson. 

Brewer was graduated from Win- 
field high school in 1953. He served 
in the Air Force for three and one- 
half years, one year in Bordeaux, 
France. John plans to attend K-State 
after he has been graduated from 
juco, and hopes to become a technical 
journalist. He is now sports editor of 
Tiger Tales. 

Brewer has chosen Jim McNeal as 
his campaign manager, and Herb 
Beavers as his publicity manager. 

Lord finished his high school days 
last year as he was graduated from 
the local high school. Lord is now the 
assistant to the finance chairmen of 
the Student Council. His job in this 
position is to help in the concession 
stand at the heme games. He is a 
history major. 

Neal Slack is campaign manager 
for Lord during the election. 

Wilson was graduated from ACHS 
in 1958. He has been active with the 
social committee, during the first 
semester. In this job he helped to plan 
and prepare for all local social gathe- 
rings. Wilson plans to finish his course 
in the field of physics. 

Susan Belt will work as Wilson's 
campaign manager. 

Candidates met January 14, to make 
plans for the beginning of the cam- 
paign. John Cary, election commi- 
sioned, was present at the meeting 
and helped divide the space for pos- 
ters and help explain the rules for 
the campaign. Student Council rules 
provide that no signs shall be placed 
on the outside of the school building

Filing Class Tours Newmans 

The college filing class toured the 
office at Newman's, Tuesday, January 
13, in its final field trip of the sem- 

Miss Mary Wilson, the instructor, 
and eleven students saw the type of 
files, the methods used in filing, and 
the various machines used in the office 

Class members were shown the 
files and were told the methods used 
in the filing charge accounts, checks, 
invoices, and correspondence. The 
guide demonstrated the machines and 
stated the purpose of each, including 
adding and posting machines, micro 
films, a check stamper, and many 
others. Methods of handling invoices, 
checks, and accounts were explained. 

Students Are 
Enrolling For 
Second Term 

A new record for second semester 
registrations may be developing for 
ACJC as freshman meet with their ad- 
visors to work out their schedules 
and sophomores enroll in courses that 
will enable them to meet their gradu- 
ation requirements. A new record for 
junior college was reached when 352 
students registered for first semester. 
Approximately 200 students had en- 
rolled for the second semester and 
about 50 more plans were in the pro- 
cess of approval Monday morning. 

Dean K. R. Galle, Mrs. Ruth Gil- 
lock, college secretary, and Miss 
Mary Margaret Williams, college head 
advisor, have been in the office every 
day to aid those students having ques- 
tions about enrollment. 

Orientation and observation, a new 
education course replacing cadet tea- 
ching, is offered for the first time and 
it is for sophomores only. This new 
arrangement is necessitated by the 
new degree requirement for teacher 
certificate. Additional second semester 
courses are textiles, dramatic produc- 
tion, botany, organic chemistry, geo- 
logy, integral calculus, office ma- 
chines, analytical geometry, family 
living, phsiology, business correspon- 
dence, child psychology, sosiology, 
descriptive geometry, and quantitative

One of the bigger problems that 
confront students at ACJC is that of 
parking. As one glances around the 
campus he sees cars parked this way 
find 'that. Some cars are angled toward 
the curb in a manner that allows one 
car to occupy a space where two 
cars could have parked. Students 
parking in front of the main building 
park their ears in a, manner that does 
not allow the pro',. 'i' number of 

Also many cars' sometimes are 
parked ton close to others, making it 
difficult to back, out when a driver 
wan*"-, t.) leave. Another problem is 
parking across sidewalks. This causes 
people to go out of their way in order 
to cross. 

People who arc guilty of the an- 
noying acts lisred are thinking of 
themselves and no one else. They considereration for other stu- 
dents who want to park around the 
school. Many must park far away. 
This causes much wasted time and in- 
convenience. If students would park 
in an orderly manner many more 
would bo able to find space nearby. 

A possible solution for this problem 
would he the marking of parking 
spaces. This would allow students to 
park t:ight and have no reason for 
parking incorrectly. If this program 
was undertaken by an organization 
such as the Student Council, a worthy 
r'orvke would be performed. — A. C. 

Editor for the Spring semester's 
Tiger Tales productions will be Allen 
Curless, Ark City freshman. He suc- 
ceeds Carolyn Foltz, also a freshman. 
No other changes in staff positions 
will be made until after the semester. 




Drama Club Plans 
Projects; Present 
Play in February 

Future plans for the Drama Club 
were discussed at a meeting held 
January 14, at the home of Margaret 
Day, 625 N. Ninth St. Suggestions 
were made by officers of the club 
when they met with Miss Rita Lud- 
v> ig, sponsor, two weeks ago. These 
suggestions were accepted by the club 

In February, the group hopes to 
present a three-act play and later 
perhaps a melodrama, a comedy, or a 
bill of one-.2ct plays. It is planned to 
use part of the proceeds from any of 
their presentations to improvment 
stage equipment in the high school 
auditorium, which is used for. product- 

Four club members, Jody Stafford, 
John Wilson, Jim McN'eal, and Fred 
Archer, l ead the one-act play, "If Men 
Played Cards as Women Do." Anoth- 
er comedy was read by Joan Munson, 
Karol Lack, Charlene Perry, and John

A. L Curry Receives 
T V, Radio as Gifts 
From QB Club 

A. L. Curry, who recently resigned 
from his 35-year post as Athletic Dir- 
ector of Arkansas City Schools, re- 
ceived a great big Christmas present 
from the Quarterback Club. It more 
than just a Christmas present, because 
in appreciation for the many years of 
service he has contributed to athletics 
in the community, he was given a 
new television set complete with rotar, 
antenna, and installation costs, and 
a transitor radio. 

While he was a student in high scho- 
ol and college, Curry himself was a 
great athlete. He served as high scho- 
ol football coach here for five years, 
then became coach for the college 
also, and carried the load cf both 
jobs for a time. Tn 1929 he added the 
job of Athletic Director to his sche- 
dule; For a time he held' both ' the job 
of college grid coach and Athletic 
Director, but in 1934 he decided to 
devote his- full ; time fo ; the. capacity 
of director. '• ■■■ • ;: - ■■• '■ ■'• • 




Class Completes 
Program Series 

The junior college radio broadcast- 
ing class has now completed their 
series of programs for this semester. 
Each student in the class has served 
as director of a program at least once, 
and therefore, a large variety of pro- 
grams were given. 

Some of the different themes were 
discussion groups, interviews, musi- 
cal talent, educational topics, and also 
a disc jockey team. 

Discussion groups were held on the 
subjects of school spirit, footballf 
basketball, and a number of others. A 
number of persons were interviewed 
during the programs, including the 
juco cheerleaders, who where asked for 
their views on what to do about school 
spirit; Goaches Dan Kahler and Reece 
Bohannan on basketball; Coaches Clint 
Webber and J. C. Louderback on foot- 
bail ; Miss Mary Margaret Williams, 
v ho informed listeners about the 
sihobl survey team from K.U.; A. E. 
Maag, who outlined the work of the 
annual staff.

Dual Road Trips &*ew&i/4, SateLne Tigers Win Over 

Two Home Tilts, 
Tell Tiger Future 

The El Dorado Grizzlies often the 
nemesis of ACJC, will arrive here to- 
morrow night, January 23, for the 
Tigers' fourth conference game. The 
Grizzlies will be out for blood, hoping 
to avenge the two conference losses 
they received at the hands of the 
Tigers last season. 

The Bengals have been a burr in the 
Grizzly paw in past sorties, and this 
game should not be any different. 

Seven days after the El Dorado 
game the Tigers will take to the road 
for a contest against the Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons, January 30, in the 
ultra-modern Hutchinson Sports 
Arena. Last season the Bengals made 
it a split bill with the Dragons. The 
final game saw the Cats drop a con- 
test at the Arena by a four-point 
margin to throw the conference race 
into a three-way tie and necessitate 
a play-off for the bunting. 

Parsons will give the Tigers a bre- 
ather from conference play January 
31, in Ark City's aud-gym. The Card- 
inals are another one of ACJC oppo- 
nensts who will be out seeking ven- 
genance against the Bengals. Last 
year Parsons went down twice under 
the Kalhermen. 

The Coffeyville Red Ravens will be 
host to the 'ACJC basketballers Feb- 
ruary 3. The first game between the 
Red Ravens and the Tigers in the 
1057-1958 season was taken by Cof- 
feyville. In second game Ark City 
turned the tables by a score of 53 to44, 
but then the Ravens went on to grab 
the state title in a three-game play- 
off. This season, however, the Arks 
already boast a 06 to 42 win over 
the Java towners on their own hard- 

Aggies Down Tigers 
In Overtime, 65-61, 
After Hot Contest 

The Cameron Aggies came from be- 
hind in the last minute of play to 
tie the Tigers and go on to beat them 
in an overtime 65 to CI at Lawton, 
January 12. 

The Aggies lead the Tigers most 
cf the first half and had a 33 to 23 
lead at halftime. The Tigers bounced 
back and poured it on the Aggies, 
and with a little more than two min- 
utes left to play the Bengals had 

This column has been initiated by 
the sports editor and sports staff of 
the Tiger Tales. Our prime mission 
will be devoted to bringing to print 
the Ark City Junior College sport 
happening both present and past, also 
brief comments and items of sporting 
interest received from other juco's 
throughout the state. 
ITEM 1 : Tiger Tales sports staff has 
received a complete basketball bro- 
chure from our neighbor to the north, 
Hutchinson Juco. Glancing over the 
Dragons' record sheet, we found that 
in the games played in the Hutchinson 
sports arena, ACJC is mentioned 
quite frequently. Del Heidebrecht 
holds the record of most points scored 
by an opponent. Heidebrecht tallied 
49 points, January 21, 1958. 
ITEM 2 From the looks of things, 
ACJC has another potential in a 
Heidebrecht Hank, who is a cousin 
to Del. Maybe this could become a 

ITEM 3: Talking about the Hutchin- 
son Sports Arena, did you know that 
the building covers an area of over 
18,000 square feet? The main floor is 
lighted by 132,000 watts of electric- 
ity, and there are 70 loudspeakers 
located throughout the Arena. Also 
that it has 208 doors, 850 tons of 
steel and 36 miles of electric wire. 
All this makes for a very outstanding 
home for the NJCAA tournament 
which is held each March in Hutchin-

B Team Splits 

The B team lost its first game of 
the season in a overtime tilt to the 
Winfield Ramblers, 53 to 52 before 
the Dodge City game. Three of the 
Rambler players were former Tigers. 

On Saturday night the B team de- 
feated the Harper town team by a 
score of 38 to 28. 

built up a 6-point lead. The hosting 
team, not ready to call it quits, 
stormed back and tied the game up 
.">? to 57 when the Arks failed to capi- 
talize on free throws after they went 
into their stalling offense. 

The Timers opened the overtime 
n'ay with Heidebrecht hitting for two, 
but a train the Bengals failed on their 
free throws, allowing the Aggies to 
t^ke command.

Dodge, Garden 
In Loop Openers 

The ACJC cagers made it two in a 
row in the first two games of confer- 
ence play, January 16-17, against 
Dodge City and Garden City, and from 
the fast-moving action of both Dodge 
City and Garden City it looks as if it 
will be a very tough week-end Febu- 
ary 20-21 when the Bengals travel to 
play both teams on their own woods. 

The Tigers, through the brilliant 
work of J. D. Smith, Hank Heide- 
brecht, Jim Lewis and Marvin Adams 
defeated the Dodge City Conqs, 63 to 
49, in the auditorium-gym January 16. 
With a tight defense put on by the en- 
tire squad, the Tigers were able to 
hold the Conqs' scoring down. 
Conqs Lead at Half 

The Bengals jumped off to a early 
lead and lead all the first half until 
the final moments, when a barrage by 
Dodge City put them in a 30 to 29 
lead. The Kahlermen roared back to 
score 34 points to 19 by the Conqs, 
and pave the way to victory. 

Tigers who saw action were Jim 
Lewis, who hit for 12, Hank Heide- 
! recht 18, Marvin Adams 12, J. D. 
Smith 11, George Rhodes 8, Bill Walk- 
er 2, Stanley Graves, Marion Metts, 
Edgar Martens, Jim Reid, and John 

Smith Is Ball Hawk 

J. D. Smith and Bill Walker took 
personal charge as the Tigers grab- 
bed their second victory of the week- 
end by taking the Garden City Bronc 
Busters, 52-46. Smith was high with 
17 points in a fine show of fast- 
moving defensive play, five times 
stealing the ball for court-length 
drives. He was followed closely by 
Walker with 14. 

The Tigers took the lead early in 
the game, to hold it all the way, with 
the Br^nc Busters trying to come 
from behind. The Busters started 
slow from the floor, but were drop- 
ping them through from the free 
throw line, and always in contention. 

Other Tigers taking: part were Mar- 
vin Adams with 5. Jim Lewis 3, 
George Rhodes 6, Hank Heidebrecht 
7, Floyd Perry, and Stan Graves.

Editor's Note: The following para- 
graph has appeared before in these 
columns, as well as elsewhere. It's 
old, but it concerns a matter that is 
ever new for student groups. Try 
gnawing on these items: 


1. Don't come to assemblies. 

2. If you do come, be late and make 
plenty of noise. 

3. If you attend an assembly, find 
fault with the program and part- 

4. Hold back applause -in- assembly or 
hotter, don't clap at all. 

5. Don't accept a place in a program; 
it is eaiser to critize than do 

fi. Feci hurt if you are not asked 
to be in a program; if you are 
asked, do not attend rehearsals. 

7. If asked by the vice-president to 
give your opinion on the program, 
tell him you have nothing to say, 
but after he leaves tell everyone 
how things ought to be done. 

8. Do nothing more than is absolute- 
ly necessary. 

9. Don't bother about "talking up" 
new programs or getting new ta- 
lent. Let someone else do it. 

10. Stay with your own little groups, 
and whatever you do, DON'T p - t~ 
icipate in larger grcup activities.

Heading Clinic Could IVlake 
a Better Student 

Are you a "slow reader?" Are you 
having difficulties scratching out a 
passing mark in a course you should 
handle with ease ? Then some new 
equipment the junior college has pur- 
chased may be your salvation. Fur- 

"Maybe after students read this 
story, they won't look so puzzled 
when they see me trundling this thing 
down the hall!" That was Miss Mary 
Margaret Williams' delighted re- 
sponse to a queery for information 
a out the two new reading machines 
she uses in her job as counselor. 
Both machines arrived in October. 

Only one of them may be carted 
around however. It is a taehista- 
scope, "Tach-X" for short. This ma- 
chine is a device used to improve at- 
tention and increase speed in recog- 
nizing numbers and word phrases. 
The other machine, a controlled rea- 
der, is kept in a small room next to 
Miss Williams' office. Its purpose is 
to increase reading rate and improve 
ability to concentrate. 

By using the Tach-X, a student can 
increase his recognition ability so 
that instead of requiring a second and 
a half to recognize a five digit num- 
ber, he may remember a nine-digit 
number in only a fourth of a second 
or less. One punil is reported to have 
increased his ability to see five digit 
numbers from a quarter of a second 
to one one-hundredth of a second. 
This was done in three work sessions 
of 30 minutes each. Words and 
phrases, 50 per cent familiar and 50 
per cent unfamiliar, are a part of the 
work with Tach-X also. 

Changing speed at which digits 
and phrases are shown is regulated 
by a cam shutter. No screen is neces- 
sary for either of the machines. Any 
flat surface such as the chalk board 
or even the wall may be used. 

A mechanism is also found on the 
controlled reader with which the ma- 
chine may be set to project the de- 
sired number of words per minute, 
and may be increased as the reader 
improves his ability. The machine may 
show a complete line of the story at 
one time or may use the sweeping 
closure device which makes the viewer 
read from left to right. All pupils 
begin with this shutter and graduate 
from this to the full line as eyes are 

Miss Williams has on file 80 diffe- 
rent film stories for the controlled 
reader. For each story there is a test, 
so tint the reader may test himself 
en comprehension. 

"We hope to increase each pupil's 
abiMty by at least 50 words per min- 
ute," she said. "Machines such as these 

are being used in reading clinics on 
college campuses, and in elementary 
and secondary schools, and business- 
men throughout 'the country have 
used them with much success. With 
the beginning of this work here, we 
are _ attempting to set up a reading 
clinic in the junior college.

Due to circumstances a college wo- 
men's gym class could not be sche- 
duled. So the girls asked Miss Kate 
Wintle, women's physical education 
teacher, if they could play during the 
noon hour, Miss Wintle consented to 
this. After a period of time and the 
able assistance of Miss Wintle, the 
girls organized a basketball team. 

in their first five games the lassies 
have a three won and two loss record 
compiled against comparable teams 
from Chiloco Indian School, Elgin 
high school and Cedar Vale high 

The lady cagers govern their games 
by official rules standarized by the 
National Health and Physical' Ed- 
ucation Association. 

"The girls would like to have some 
home games scheduled," Miss Wintle 
said Monday, "and anyone interested 
may contact me at the women's phy- 
sical education office in the Aud-gym. 

Members of the team are Nadine 
Foster, Kay Hutehins, Christine Sand- 
strum, Barbara Wapp, Benedictine St. 
John, Geneva Wallace, Gloria Hardy 
and Patsy Lawson.

Heavy Fouling 
Main Cause of 
Lose to Hutch 

The Blue Dragons of Hutchinson 
virtually eliminated the Tigers from 
the 1959 conference race when they 
took an early lead in their game in 
the sports arena, January 30, and held 
it to defeat the ACJC Cagers 61-51. 

During the first half, Bill French, 
center for the Dragons, dropped thr- 
ough 11 points as Hank Heidebrecht, 
center for the Tigers, dropped one 
through for the Bengals. The slow 
start for Heidebrecht was attributed 
to three fouls early in the half, and 
he sat out nearly all of the first half. 

During the second half Heidebrecht 
sprang back with a flying start to 
drop through 6 points in ten minutes 
before picking up his fifth foul. Dur- 
ing this period of the second half J.D. 
Smith also assisted in the short rally, 
which brought the Tigers within five 
points of the hot Blue Dragons. 

Tiger scorers were Stan Graves 2, 
George Rhodes 5, Heidebrecht 7, Mar- 
vin Adams 12, Smith 15, Charles Reid 
5, Bill Walker 2, and John Taylor 3. 
Other Tigers seeing action were Floyd 
Perry and Bob Liming. 

Grizzlies Down 
Tigers in Overtime 

The Ark City Tigers were unable to 
break the El Dorado Grizzlies' win- 
ning streak January 23, as the Bears 
downed the Bengals 62 to 59 in the 
Timers' own gym in an overtime con- 

El Dorado controlled the attack for 
most of the contest, but with 4:05 loft- 
on the clock and the score tied 55 to 
55, the Bengals displayed a very fine 
stalling game which was executed by 
Charles Reid, Hank Heidebrecht, Mar- 
vin Adams, Jim Lewis, and J. D. 
Smith. With only seconds left in the 
game Jim Lewis' attempted jump shot 
was missed, and the game went into 
an overtime. 

Postoak of El Dorado meshed a 
jump shot and was fouled to give the 
Grizblies the overtime lead. Then 
Lively tallied two free throws to total 
the Bears' winning margin. 

The Ark City Reservists overcame 
a 15-point halftime margin and squel- 
ched the APCO oilers 47 to 46 in the 
preliminary game. George Rhodes, 
with 10, and Ed Martins, with 11, 
lead the Tigers B's scoring. Former 
Tiger Potter was top game scorer 
with 21 points. 

Bieive>i'& tZaielitte Busy Schedule 

ITEM 1. I would like to draw at- 
tention to one Tiger on the current 
Junior College team. He has proven 
without a doubt a very important con- 
tention of mine, that size is not al- 
ways a major factor in producing a 
fine ball player. Of course size helps, 
I will agree, but it is not always domi- 
nant, J. D. Smith has shown that 
desire, combined with a sincere de- 
votion for the fine sport of basketball, 
will develop a reliable and well- 
rounded ball player for any coach of 
any team 

ITEM 2. The Ark City Tigers are 
currently rated number six in the 
NJCAA cage poll. This position was 
established by an overall average of 
offense and defense ratings. The 
Tigers are also positioned number 3 
in the defense ratings with a 50.3 in 
13 games. 

ITEM 3. Duane Langhover, who 
last season was the No. 1 Class A A 
high school basketball scorer in Kan- 
sas, has withdrawn from El Doraro 
Juco. This item illustrates one of the 
many problems confronting the out- 
standing high school athlete when he 
steps into college ranks. Often he 
has' reached his peak in high school 
and he will decline in his playing 
ability. If this happens he of tens 
drops" out of school and possibly car- 
ries within him a feeling of failure. 
When this hapnens someone should 
take this bey and at least give him 
a fair explanation of what has hap- 
pened to them. It is not his fault but a 
simple biological fact. Tell him and 
show him that there are other areas 
of achievement which will be as re- 
warding as personal participation in 

Seven Tiger Football Players

Co Tigers 
Clip Those Eagles 

Ahead for Juco 
Basketball Team 

A busy schedule is now in sight for 
the next two weeks as the Tigers 
meet two conference teams and two 
Eastern Division foes. 

First in the line-up is a non-confer- 
ence game with the St. John's Eagles 
of Winfield. The ACJC Cagers will 
host the Eagles when they make the 
short jaunt down February 7. The 
Bengals took the Eagles 67-36, Dec- 
ember 11, at Winfield. 

The Tigers will again become host 
when the Pratt Beavers come to play 
in the auditorium-gymnasium Febru-

uary 20, with a final score of 63 to 5S. 

The third game of the two week 
series will be against the Fl Dorado 
Grizzles February 10, at El Dorad". 
The Grizzles came out on top in a 
fast moving, close game, January 23, 
with the score at the end of an over- 
time being 62-59. 

The last game of the series will be 
with the Pirates as the Tigers journey 
to Independence. This is the first 
game of the season with the Pirates,

Streak in Easy 
Win Over Parsons 

The Tigers broke a three-game 
losing streak by defeating the Parsons 
Cardinals, 74 to 59, January 31, in the 

"Hie Tigers had litt'e trouble as they 
rolled to victory. The combination 
of Floyd Perry, Stan Graves, J. D. 
Smith, Hank Heidebrecht, and Mar- 
vin Adams proved to be too strong for 
I lie Cards as they dropped in 59 
points to equal Parsons score. 

The Bengals had a fairly good night 
on the boards, hitting 25 out of 69 
for a 36 per-cent average .

Dear Editor: 

Clubrooms, or waste basket? 

Which are they? Ciubrooms, where 
some students come to relax, take a 
break or play table-tennis; or is it a 
place where others come to disturb, 
destroy or litter it up with their pop 
bottles, candy and gum wrappers 
strewn about, leaving the chairs and 
t.ibles all askew, and an array of 
general disorder prevailing throug- 
out the place? 

Is the latter description the one 
that greets ycu when you walk into 
the clubrooms at any time durin^ the 
day? If it is, and you feel as I do 
about it, you will feel shame and dis- 
gust to know that you go to school 
with classmates who seem to have no 
respect for the effort put forth by the 
Junior College to provide a place for 
students to' go on their off hours. 

To those who say that there was 
never anything decent or nice to start 
with, I have this to say: a start is 
much better than nothing at all. So 
be proud of what you have, treat it 
that way and perhaps we can prove 
ourselves worthy of additional equip- 
ment and facilities. 

— Don Lambring 

Fditor's Note: Mr. Lambring makes 
;m important point above. Tisrer Tales 
agrees with him. The college clubroom 
is the product of student activity. A 
student steward is employed by the 
student body, through th° Student 
Council, to act as caretaker. We can't 



Economics Students Gamble 
On Stock Market for Grade 

Economics students averaged $1,836 
.29 profit while playing the stock mar- 
ket first semester, but it was all in 

Students were each given an imag- 
inary $10,000 to invest in markets as 
they desired and six students realized 
over three thousand dollars each in 
the simulated market activities. In 
addition to the fun of watching their 
"money" grow, the students gained 
experience in dealing in the market 
and acquired some understanding in 
the functions and intricacies of the 
st ck market. 

have what we do not care for. One 
employee cannot pick up after 3">0 
Jitterbugs, or repair what they break. 
What we have today is what is left 
of nearly $7,000 of student funds and 
about $1,500 of Board of Education 
fi nds spent on the clubroom in the 
past ten years. 

The top money maker was June 
Harris, who reported a total gain of 
$6,287.50 with such stocks as Alcoa, 
Moi tgomerv Ward, Woolworth, Rex- 
all Drug, United States Steel, Stan- 
dard Oil of New Jersey, and DuPcnt 
hemieal. Other top financiers were 
Gary Humiston with $5,117.75, Mary- 
Anna Bridges and Mrs. Charlen« Cow- 
en with $4,612.62 each. Don Wilson 
with $3,584.00, Glen Langley with 
$3,451.10, and Lee Moore with $3,253. 

The assignment was made in mid- 
October by Dr. Paul M. Johnson and 
carried to mid-January. The brokerage 
fees were ignored and students were 
required to keep all of the money in- 
vested at all times, though they 
could sell and immediately invest in 
another company at any time.

Tough western 
Foes Entertain 



A long road trip and two home 
games will wind up the conference 
clashes for the ACJC roundballers. 

The Dodge City Conquistadors and 
the Garden City Broncs will be hosts 
to the Bengals February 20 and 21. 
This trip is an important on as both 
Conqs and the Broncs are known for 
the tough opposition they provide on 
the home courts. The ACJC cagers 
defeated Dodge City, 63-49, and Gar- 
den City, 52-48, on their recent trips 

Hutchinson's Blue Dragons, who 
are presently in second place in the 
conference race, invade Tigerland, 
February 24. The Blue Dragons de- 
feated the Cats 61-51 at the Hutch- 
inson Sports Arena, January 30. 

The Tigers play host to the Pratt 
Beavers on February 26. The game 
was originally scheduled for February 
9, but was postponed because of bad 
weather and unfavorable road con- 
ditions. The Beavers defeated the 
Arks after a tough scramble on the 
Beaver home boards, 63-56. The Tiger 
team will be out to avenge this loss. 

Although it is mathematically pos- 
sible, is is highly improbable that the 
Kahlermen will not be able to obtain a 
share of the conference crown for the 
first time in seven years. If the Ben- 
gals should win all of their remaining 
conference games, they will undoubt- 
edly finish in the first division. 

Bengals Lose 
To Indy Pirates 



Independence, currently leading the 
Eastern Division race squeezed by the 
Tigers 62 to 56 in a non-conference 
game February 13 at Independence. 

The Tigers were continualy in the 
game threatening within a few points 
at times to overtake the Pirates, but 
Independence managed to hold the 
hapless Bengals at bay. Fumble-itis 
seemed to be the main factor in the 
Tiers' defeat. 

The scoring in 10 minute intervals 
was as follows: J. D. Smith 6. Marvin 
^dams 7. John Taylor 1, Jim Lewis 4, 
<~h<u'le<= Reid 10, George Rhodes 2, 
Hank Heidebrecht 8, Stan Graves 9, 
'■nd Fill Walker 9. Independence scor- 
ing was 1 y L. Knackstedt 14, Grasso 
2, Sebbert 10, Hallaev 2. Shorwo-d 10 
Stamps 4. Rmnfelt 2, Deckard 5 and 
Russell 13. 

175 Adults Attending 

Juco Night Classes 

Junior colleg evening classes got 
under way February 11, with approxi- 
mately 175 persons attending reg- 
ularly on Monday, Tuesday, or Wed- 
nesday evenings. 

This brings the total enrollment of 
day classes and night classes to 510, 
exclusive of an extension course. 

Courses offered and their instruc- 
tors are accounting, with Elmer Jar- 
vis; adult recreation for women, with 
Mrs. Celeste Reynolds; both blue print 
reading and furniture repair, with 
Everett Malan; both office machines 
and typing, with Miss Verna Stute- 
vi'lle; conversational Spanish, with 
Miss Anne Hawley; millinery, with 
Mrs. Charles McDowell; clothing, 
with Mrs. Nelle Juneman, and both 
landscaping and flower arranging, 
with Miss Alice Carrow. Two "Great 
Books" discussion groups continue 
from last semester. 

Tigers Set Two 
Records in 
Blasting Eagles 

The Bengals established a new Aud- 
Gym scoring record and also set a 
new Tiger team mark, February 7, 
as they trounced the St. Johns Eagles 
of Winfield 104 to .41. 

The past Aud-Gym record was 100 
to 68 set in the 1953-54 season, when 
ACJC played host to Fort Scott. In 
the 1952-53 Nationals the Tigers 
downed Big Springs, Tex, 103 to 76, 
this score standing- for six years as a 
Tiger team record. 

Hank Heidebrecht and Marvin Ad- 
ams were high gunners for the Tigers 
with 16 points and 13 points respec- 
tively. Every one of the Bengals were 
represented in the team victory. 
Scoring for Ark City went as follows: 
J. D. Smith 10, John Taylor 4, Ed 
Martens 3, Jim Lewis 9, Charles Reid 
8, George Rhodes 5, Stan Graves 12, 
Jim Anderson 1, George Aleshire 3, 
Marvin Cox 3, Phil Truby 5, Bill 
Walker 6, Floyd Perry 5, and Bob 
Liming 1. St. Johns scorers were Bar- 
ton 13, Freund 13, Pieper 6, Johnson 1, 
Wilk 2, Geisinger 1, Schoenfals 1, and 
Hoffman 4. 

The BeeTigers defeated the Harper 
Merchants in the preliminary game 
66 t'.> 55, to tally their eighth win in 
10 games. Pill Walker and Charles 
Reid were high with 12 points each. 
Other BeeTiger counters were George 
Phodos 7, John Taylor 5, George 
Aleshire 5. Bob Liming 4. Jim Ander- 
son 6, Phil Truby 8, and Ed Martens 
6. M°rvin Cox and John Cary played 
but did not score. 

Tigers 66, Pirates 54 

igers Hopes 




The Ark City Tigers' conference 
hopes were further diminished by the 
El Dorado Grizzlies. February 10, at 
El Dorado, by a score of 75 to 71. 

The lead changed hands quite fre- 
quently throughout the contest. The 
Tigers held a 6-point margin twice in 
the later stages of the contest, but 
the bombarding of Berlin -and Postoak 
of El Dorado narrowed the margin. 

Ftto throws were lacking for the 
Tigers, as they hit only 13 of 27, 
while the Grizzlies dumped in 33 out 
of 46. The Bengals tallied 26 of 36 
shots from the field for a 46 per cent 
average. El Dorado bit 21 of 50 field 
goals for a average of 42 per cent. 

Free throws and fouls were the 
damaging factors against the Tigers 
as Hank Heidebrecht, J. D. Smith, Jim 
Lewis, and Marvin Adams left the 
game on personals. Charlie Reid, re- 
covering from his long slump, as- 
sisted the Tigers with a fine perfor- 
mance of shooting and ball-hawking. 

Five of the Bengals tallied in double 
figures, including Heidebrecht with 13, 
Stan Graves 17, Lewis 14, Reid 10, 
and Adams 10. Smith got 2 and George 
Rhodes 5. Floyd Perry, Jim Anderson, 
Bill Walker, and John Taylor assisted 
the Tigers in floor play, but did not 
enter the scoring column. 

Berlin, the big Grizzly center, who 
in the game here had been held to 8 
points, was the high score for the El- 
Dodado crew with 24 points, Lively 
was the number two man with 14. 
Others playing were Hawkins 6, 
Myers 10, Postoak 14, Fink 5, Gecker 
2, and Pietronigro.

Survey Made 
Of Teachers, 
Students, Schoo 

Faculty and students were putting 
their best feet forward as an evalu- 
ation survey team was in Ark City 
and the junior college for three days 
last week to make a comparative 
study of the junior college for pur- 
poses of state accreditation and mak- 
eing propsals for improvements. 

The team studied the activities of 
the students, the curriculum, and the 
administrative practices. 

Those included in the team were 
Dean Kenneth Anderson, Dean of the 
School of Education at the university 
of Kansas and Floyd Herr, Director 
of College Accreditation of the State 
Department of Education, co-chairmen 
of the committee; James Hitt, Direc-

Results of the survey have not been 
released at the present time, but are 
expected to be available before the 
end of the school year. The local Board 
of Education and the college faculty 
are then expected to make any neces- 
sary moves to bring the school into

Beaver 'Cinderella Team' 
Cops First Region VI Title 

Pratt the Cinderella team from 
Western Kansas faced the toughest 
competion of the Juco Western Divi- 
sion in the Region VI tourney held in 
Ark City March 4-7, and success- 
fully conquered all contenders to win 
first place in the tournament. They 
are playing this week in the national 
tourney at Hutchinson. 

Pratt advanced to the finals and 
faced the tough El Dorado Grizzlies 
for the playoff. The Beavers defeated 
the Grizzlies 62 to 50 in a real 
thriller. The game was close all the 
way, with the lead changing hands 
several times during the game. Pratt 
enioyed the largest lead of the game 
with a six-point margin with one 
minute left to play. El Dorado began 
their famous stretch drive and came 
within eyelash of beating the Bea- 
vers. With mere seconds left and 
Pratt holding a one-point margin, a 
desperation mid-court shot by El 
Dorado almost went through the hoop. 
The shot hit the backboard and the 
rim and bounced away to the delight 
of the Pratt fans. 

The quarter-final action saw El 
Dorado walk over the Dodge City 
Conqs, 72 to 56, and Arkansas City 
hump Garden City 59 to 56. Huthin- 
son squeaked by Central 45 to 41 and 
Pratt eased over Tonkawa 78 to 55, 
winners going into the semi-finals. 

Pratt defeated Hutchinson 69 to 50 
to gain a berth in the finals. El Dor- 
ado barely edged Ark City 73 to 72 in 
an overtime thriller. 

Selected for the All-Tournament 
team were Ark City's fine-shooting 
guard, Charles Reid, Wayne Postoak 
of El Dorado, Don Steinhartr and 
Travis Finley of Pratt, and Bill James 
of Hutchinson. 

Tigers Trim Broncs

den City Broncs 59 to 56 in their 
first game of the Region VI Junior 
College Tourney March 4, in the Aud- 

The Ark Citians had to hustle 
throughout the game as the Broncs 
continually pressed them for the lead. 
The score at halftime was 23-21, with 
Ark City holding the tramp. 

Jim Lewis, Charles Reid and Hank 
Heidebrecht were the top chargers 
for the Kahlermen with 20, 11, and 15 
points respectively. 

Arks Fall in Overtime 

Coach Dan Kalher's Tigers swal- 
lowed a bitter pill March 6, in the 
semi-finals of the Region VI Tourna- 
ment, as they were handed their sixth 
overtime loss of the season 73 to72, by 
the El Dorado Grizzlies in the Aud- 


The regular game was nip and tuck 
throughout as the lead changed hands 
several times. In the first overtime, 
the Bengals grabbed a six-point lead 
in the early minutes, but El Dorado 
fired back to tie the overtime score 
66 all. 

The second overtime scoring see- 
sawed until the nal fiminutes with 
the Grizzlies leading 73 to 70. J. D. 
Smith's vain attempt for a bucket and 
possibily a free throw was missed, 
but big Hank Heidebrecht grabbed 
the rebound and tipped it in to bring 
the Bengals within one-point cf the 
El Doraroans. 

Stan Graves hit 21 points for the 
Bengals, grabbing game honors. Other 
Tigers particapting and scoring were 
Charles Reid 17, J. D. Smith 9, M. 
Adams 2, Jim Lewis 8, George Rhodes 
6, Hank Heidebrecht 9, and Floyd 

AC Drops Hutch for 3rd 

Sophomore Floyd Perry brought 
down the curtain of his juco basket- 
hail career March 7, with a brilliant 
flair. Perry's free shot gave the Tig- 
ers a 61 to 60 win over the Hutchinson 
Blue Dragons, in the consolation final 
of the Region VI tourney in the Aud- 

Just before the timekeeper's gun 
went off Perry was fouled. The score 
was tied 60 all and the clock showed 
one second left to play of regulation 
time. Floyd received two shots. His 
first attempt rimmed the hoop, and 
careened out. Perry gained his com- 
posure and confidently sank the second 
shot to give the Bengals third place 
in the tournament. 

The game was close all the way 
with neither team being able to gar- 
ner a very big margin. 

Charles Reid was top Tiger for the 
Kahlermen with a career high of 26 
points. Others contributing were Hank 
Heidebrecht 13, Jim Lewis 13, Stan 
Graves 6, Bill Walker 6, Floyd Perry 
5, George Rhodes 2, Marvin Adams 1, 
and J. D. Smith.

Hall, Schimmel Call to 
New York for Assignment; 
Labelled Super Scholars 

When Ron Hall and Keith Schim- 
mel start out to finish an assign- 
ment nothing stands in their way. 

A rhetoric assignment given by Dan 
Kahler to his students was to find 
out the central idea of the poem "V-J 
Day" from an authority on the poem. 

Hall and Schimmel traced the 
author, John Ciardi, head of the Eng- 
lish Department at Rutgers, to his 
home in Brunswick, New Jersy. A 
phone call to his resident revealed 
that he was on leave from Rutgers 
and was in New York City. 

A phone call to New York was made 
from the junior college office on 
Thursday at 10 a. m. The two suc- 
ceeded in reaching Ciardi and queried 
him on his aims in "V-J Day." 

Both students were awarded 50 
extra credit points in rhetoric by 
Kahler. The cost of the phone calls 
had not been disclosed at press time.

Kansas Master Teacher | n Progress for 

1959 Tigerama 

A frantic struggle was underway 
among sudent committees Thursday 
as they sought to complete plans for 
the 29th annual Tigerama, the high- 
light of the spring social season and 
the annual entertainment project for 
area school seniors. 

In last-minute explantions student 
officers had to tell some members of 
the student body that only seniors 
and o^-of-school persons could be 
brought as dates of college students 
Alumni, it was emphasized, were also 
welcome. "Informal" attire was re- 
quested, which was defined as party 
dresses for the women and coats and 
ties for the men. 

The "Isle de Fleur" theme was be- 
ing prepared by garlands of flowers, 
the result of long sessions in the even- 
ing hours by a variety of student 
groups, huge murals painted by stu- 
dent artists, and a fountain still in 
the process of being dreamed up and 
tested by the Vet's Club. 

Mary Cotter, student council social 
committee chairman, and John Bre- 
wer, student president, believed Wed- 
nesday evening that their receiving 
line was all alerted and committed, 
but they were having difficulties with 
slippery faculty members. 

Herb Jimmerson's band has been 
hired for the evening, and is scheduled 
to play from 9 until 12.

--Students, Say Juco Profs 

"There's no doubt about it, you 
learn more from students. When they 
outnumber you 30 to 1 per class and 
you don't learn from them something 
is wrong with you." This is the answer 
given by Dan Kahler, rhetoric in- 
structor, when asked to give the best 
source of learning he has had during 
his teaching career. 

In a recent survey it was found 
that 60 per cent of the faculty inter- 
viewed were in agreement with Kah- 

When asked from what source she 
had received the most information 
during her teaching career Miss Ann 
Hawley, language instructor, said: 

"A first-hand knowledge of "stu- 
dent nature," so essential to teaching, 
cannot be acquired from books. Con- 
tact with students, moreover, helps 
one to keep a fresh point of view." 

Miss Henrietta Ccurtright, mathe- 
matics instructor, believes she learned 

the most from professors at summer 
sessions and Dr. Howard F. Fehr, 
Columbia University, in particular. 

Miss Gaye Iden, physics instructor, 
was in agreement. She believes she 
learned more at Kansas University 
and from Dr. Kester, of the physics 
department at Kansas University, 
than from any other source since she 
started teaching. 

Miss Rita Ludwing, speech and Eng- 
lish teacher, thought that her associ- 
ation with other faculty members was 
the most important source of learning 
since she began teaching last fall. 

It was the opinion of both Miss 
Mary Margaret Williams, Rhetoric in- 
structor, and Miss Mary Wilson, bus- 
iness instructor, that they have re- 
ceived the most information from 
students and faculty members. 

Allan Maag, history instructor, says 
he has learned mere from students and 
from student publications than from

Failures at Canaveral Are 
Actually Successes, 
General Tells Students 

"Those greatly over-publicized fail- 
ures at Cape Canaveral are actually 
advancements. Without failures we 
could never succeed," retired Major 
General Oi'vil A. Anderson, USAF, 
disclosed in assembly before the stu- 
dent body, April 22. 

"While Russia is ahead of the Uni- 
ted States in propellants, this will not 
be true within the next two years," 
the General reported. "Due to the 
extreme expense of chemical propel- 
lants, the United States will be forced 
to use nuclear energy. At present it 
takes 2,000 pounds of chemical pro- 
pellant to put one pound of missile 
into orbit," General Anderson said. 

Anderson is touring high schools 
and colleges throughout the United 
States, speaking to students on the 
importance of the space race. 

Dan Kahler, English instructor and 
basketball coach, was in Dexter April 
17 for a high school Career Day. 

any other single source since he star- 
ted teaching. 

J. Kelsey Day, biological science 
teacher, says he has received the most 
information "from the kids." 

It was the purpose of this survey, 
begun as an assignment in a rhetoric 
class, to determine the importance of 
the students influence on his instruc- 
tors' education since leaving college-
